This presentation is for cruisers looking to upgrade their sail inventory whether for local inshore sailing, coastal cruising or a long distance ‘blue-water’ cruise. David will present the differences in rigs and sail plans and discuss the best options in sail shapes and sizing to achieve individual goals for each mode of cruising.
Sail Trim for Control

This presentation provides instruction on best practice sail trim for cruisers. The goal is to present the sailor with ways deal with common cruising concerns of heel, over-powered situations, best upwind performance and easy down-wind sailing. You will learn about all the components of sail shape and trim and how to use the controls on your boat to overcome these common concerns.
