Topic: High speed reaching

<<< BACK    FWD>>>

High speed reaching in a 12 is very exciting and often quite wet.

When sailed properly you'll be surprised how fast you can go even relative to asymmetrics, particularly on a tight reach.

Key points are:

  • Get on the plane and stay on it
  • Anticipate the gusts
  • Play the waves
  • Put your body weight to work
