If you thought the skipper was the most important person on the boat?. Guess again.
The sail trimmers control the speed of the boat, upwind and down, when cruising or when racing. We will talk about keeping the boat moving at the critical moments (crossing channels, start line and mark roundings).
We will discuss keeping the boat moving in light air and depowering her in heavy air. We will take the mystery out of the control lines (halyards, boom vangs and the like). Most importantly, we will help you feel powerful when you look at the sail and it talks to you (they all do, you just need to know the vocabulary).
