… a book can only teach us so much. Ultimately you teach yourself.Eric Twiname in Sail, Race and Win
The sailing season is upon us! Seems like a good time to develop an improvement plan and go out and do some focused practice. So, we decided to compile a list of sailing practice techniques for solo, paired, or multiple boats.
We searched online and our favorite sailing books for practice techniques that don’t require more than a few buoys and, in a few cases, a helper. We also developed some of our own ideas. Then we organized them by skill set.
We came up with 60 techniques across a wide variety of skill sets. Find the skills you want to improve and have at it! Give us some feedback and let us know your favorite techniques.
