Subject: [Star45] Sail Trim
A great place to learn about sail trim and sailing in general.
Star 45 Class Secretary
Outstanding recommendation. Wonderful site. full of photographs and all sorts of instructional materials. Pictures of tells and how to read them:)
Another must place to visit (you can try out your sailing skills):
National Geographics Interactive Sailing:
Master rudder and sail to get your boat going as fast as possible no matter what direction you're sailing in-or which way the wind's blowing.
Sail Adjuster: Use the left sliding controller to rotate the sail in relation to shifting wind (shown as arrows). When you cross the path of the wind, your sail will swing to the opposite side.
Rudder Adjuster: Using the right sliding controller, steer to port (left) or starboard (right).
