    • Note:
    • FULL Sails
    • Boat is TILTED
    • Sailors are leaning against the wind, using their bodyweight as counterweight.
    • Sailors lean on the side that is rising; keep it from tipping over.
    Press DOWN

  • 9. Once you “right the boat” …
    • Once you fall into the water, hang on to boat. Hold a rope.
    • Never let go of the boat. It might float away.
    • Two guys: clamber aboard, at the same time. Not one at a time.
    • Never sail away while your partner is still in the water. He might not be able to swim fast enough to catch up with the boat.
  • 10. Turning
    • Always lean backwards, your back to the wind
    • Shift position, when the boat turns
    Sail will WHIP to the other side. Boom will SWING.
  • 11. Parking
    • Don’t scrape the boat’s bottom on rocks or cement.
    • Park on the muddy shore, not the cement pier.
    • Raise the Rudder, so it won’t scrape the mud shore.
    • Pull the boat inland, a few meters.
    ROCKS

    • Wear track suit, or jogging pants. If possible, kneepads. Wear windbreaker or double-T-shirt. Even a warm Wind might give you a chill, if you’re all drenched.
