Green Fleeters!! We're working on speed and boathandling - Particularly Roll Tacks!!
YouTube is full of great Opti Sailing Video Examples!! Please check out these videos before Practice this weekend... So we can get closer on the tacks & jibes!!
- Rayne from the British Virgin Islands - He's a small sailor, and does a great job vaulting across the CB Trunk in the tack. (-Oliver take note!!)
- Shirley Robertson talks sailors thru this roll tacking tutorial... video goes slow and emphasizes the hand switch we've been working on.
- Notice that the sailor remains seated until the boom passes overhead.
- You did not believe me... but here is proof!! Look at how they hold the centerboard... This is a National team practice... but the sailors you see are my mostly Cow Harbor Sailing Team kids.
