The 12 is a joy to roll tack



The principles of roll tacking are similar to any other 2 person dinghies but once you've learnt to roll tack the 12 you won't want to go back to any other boat.

The golden rules are:

  1. Keep it smooth
  2. Use your body movements to help turn
  3. Don't use too much rudder
  4. Use plenty of heel
