DELLENGAUGH TALKS TO LASERS


.
In the December Speed and Smarts Dave Dellenbaugh tells how he sailed away with the Thistle Championship.
.
Startegizing, starting, boat prep, tactical moves, and speed testing.
.
Working for speed 1) New Sails. 2) Get the mast straight. 3) Clean the hull.
4) Speed test with a friend. Mark the fast points. (2010 rules allow Laser to mark up mast, booms and hull for fast points. Not sails yet.)5) Get everything as light as you can.
.
Avoid breakdowns.. Check all you lines and equiment and replace if warn.
.
Starting avoid the crowded ends. Get line of sight and be near the line.
.
Sail fast up the middle and work the shifts.
.
If you are fast it will make everything else look good.
.
Suprise anyone??

  1. Hallo Sam,
    Nothing new but it's all worth repeating - again and again.
    It would be nice if you occasionally quote Speed&Smarts.
