Wednesday! I can’t believe I’m only on my third day of online school! It already feels very natural, like I’ve been doing it my whole life. Today, I’m doing the first in a new series that I hope to do every other week (ish) about the Racing Rules of Sailing. While these are sailing-related and might not be the most exciting for those of you who don’t sail, I hope you’ll stick around and skim them anyway, as I’m trying to make these pretty easy to understand.
Today, I’m talking about a few things: The parts of my opti (just so you can understand what I’m talking about; how the boat works, and the basics of the points of sail. Here are some diagrams (that I hope make some sense), but if you have any more questions PLEASE let me know (comment below)!
