  5. Hey Allison I really like your videos, you're also funny and relaxed about it all. Cheers from Buenos Aires

  6. I've been crewing on other boats for several seasons now, but this is the first season that I'm now racing my own boat. I have a ton to learn and have fairly old sails but videos like this will certainly help.  Thanks for making them.  Racing a fin keel Chrysler 26 if you're curious.

  7. I know this is sailing video but I'm in love with the eyes.

    great video for beginners like myself! thank you so much for taking the time to talk us through this, and please continue to post similar videos on regatta tactics

  10. Two years ago, on my Catalina 27, I did a port tack start against a J-30 and a Yamaha 32 during a short course race. All other boats ending up doing 3 tacks to get around the windward mark and I only had to do 2 tacks. The port start put my lay line closer to the windward mark with one less tack required. Was pretty gusty that day (15-20) so I corrected over the entire fleet of 5 boats by using the port tack start. A little different from what you describe but it worked well for me. Thanks for the tactics. I'm sure to use them in the future!
