As the wind goes up and down on a lake far more (always seems that way), remember ease and tighten the main and jib sheet accordingly
As you adjust the jib sheet you’ll be able to see the leech of the jib in the window by the spreader literally open and close with more or less tension.
Learning from others:
A very simple tip, if a boat is going faster than you, don’t bury your head in shame, look at the sails, the boat trim, and copy them…….and if it works remember to thank that boat afterwards!! Eyes out of the boat…….the smaller the sailing area the more important when it’s not all going right, remember that the alternatives are never as exciting…..….you just might be working….so just smile and carry on.
