ISSUE #: 149
THEME: Downwind Tactics
DATE: Nov/Dec 2019
In the last issue we discussed downwind strategy – how to use information about wind and current to make a plan that will get you to the leeward mark as quickly as possible. In this issue we’ll talk about how to implement your strategy when
you’re racing in a fleet of boats. You can have the best strategic plan in the world, but it won’t help very much if you let other boats push you around. That’s why you need smart tactics!
