One aspect of Laser sailing where I am very slow compared to the good sailors at regattas around here is sailing upwind in waves. I suspect that there are a number of details of my technique that I need to improve to close that gap.
I wonder what I can learn from this video clip? (The clip is first played at full speed, and then at half speed with commentary. The changeover is at about 1:30.)
Any comments from my expert Laser sailing friends?
Sheeting in and out?
Is this a good technique to emulate?
Could you suggest any better alternatives?
