Whilst racing over the weekend I was wondering about my tactics or rather lack of tactics and realised I probably needed a refresher course after many years off racing. So I did a bit of hunting around and came across Mark Rushall's RYA book on strategy and tactics. Mark is a highly respected sailor and coach and has put all his experience into this book. I will let you know what I learn.
Whilst looking I came across several useful snippets. Little gems on positioning the boat against the fleet for the next wind shift, when to drive hard and fast and when to point high. Just search on tactics and racing strategy. It's amazing what we don't know. I have much to learn.
2 months until the next ranking event.
