This new four-part webinar series is all about improving your ability to get around marks quickly with less risk. Rounding a mark is usually one of the most crowded, and critical, moments of any race. There is often a chance to make a big gain (or a big loss), and success depends on finding the right mix of strategy, tactics, speed and risk-taking. Topics include the ideal course to steer around a mark, turning techniques, communication, rules about touching a mark, tactics for approaching windward marks, layline strategies, keys to good leeward mark roundings, exit strategies, determining the favored side of a gate or finish line, shooting the finish and more. Content is geared to all types of boats for both skippers and crews.

The series starts Monday, March 1 at 7:30 pm and continues on Mondays through March. Sessions are about 90 minutes each, led by Dave Dellenbaugh.

March 1 – KEY CONCEPTS (that apply at all marks)

March 8 – WINDWARD MARKS (and Offsets)

March 15 – LEEWARD MARKS (and Gates)

March 22 – FINISHES (Upwind and Downwind)
