Waples Wines Traveller Tips!

And now another of our regular Travellers Tips, this time from Richard Lovering:

Traveller Tips #12 Gybing in lots of wind!:

“When it’s windy the crew pulls the main over during the gybe from the centre main sheet, because this allows a better pull on it. Also, before going for the pole make sure the boat is flat and fully under control.”

Waples Wines Traveller's Tips!

“Finally, before you go into the gybe you should also make sure the pole is at the right height, in order that you can get the pole back onto the mast quickly after the gybe without fighting the downhaul. ”
