135 Championship Analysis 2

$6.00 each


ISSUE #: 135
THEME:Championsjip Analysis 2
DATE: Aug/Sep 2015

CONTENTS:This issue is all about the lessons that my crew and I learned and re-learned while racing in the 2015 Lightning International Masters Championship in Canada. The format is a race-by-race analysis of key moves and strategies that cover starting, wind shifts, how to approach and exit marks, strategizing, upwind tactics and more. The regatta was raced in Lightnings, but almost all the lessons apply to any boat, whether you sail a singlehanded dinghy, asymmetrical sport boat or handicap racer.
