THEME: Downwind Strategy
DATE: Sept/Oct 2098
CONTENTS:S ailing downwind is a critical part of almost every race these days. To be successful on leeward legs you need good boatspeed, solid boat-to-boat tactical moves and, perhaps most importantly, a smart strategic plan. You can be the fastest boat in the fleet with the best tactics, but those strengths won’t help much if you miss
a big windshift or an area of pressure and go the wrong way. That’s why you need a strategic plan to help you take the fastest route down the run. This issue is all about that – how to put together and execute a downwind strategy.
