Tactics - Golden Rules

  • Avoid being blanketed.
  • Avoid the hopeless position.
  • Avoid being lee - bowed.
  • Start near the forward (upwind) end of the start line.
  • Ignore the position of the windward mark when deciding where to start (provided the first leg is a beat).
  • Keep in the front rank before the start.
  • Take a transit so you know when you are on the line.
  • Keep between your opponent and the next mark.
  • Off wind, keep your wind clear and try to sail straight for the next mark.
