Saling tutorial
Join me on a comprehensive sailing lessen about the basics of how a sail works. I will teach you the theoretical knowledge of how to trim a sail and I will show you in a fun experiment why both sides of the sail are important. As a professional Nacra 17 sailor I know how important the sails on a sailboat are and if you understand how they work you can sail any kind of sailing boat. In this tutorial I will also cover tell tales.
