Yacht racing

Yacht racingThis website is intended to assist people interested in sailing. We will be mainly focusing on principles of sailing, rules in yacht racing, sailing techniques and nautical navigation.

The handling of a yacht is ofcourse best learned by practical experience. When it comes to yacht racing the steersman in a race must endeavour to get the utmost out of his boat. It is natural to every experienced helmsman to try to do so even when cruising, but it is especially important to the man at the helm of a racing yacht. Not a second must be lost.

Now I venture to think that my hints upon the first principles of steering a yacht may lead the young helmsman into the right channels if he proceeds upon the methods I have suggested he ought to become a helmsman with "a good style" and with practice develop into a useful man in a race.
