It’s always fun, and a sign that spring will eventually arrive, to share sail-trim concepts with the hopeful and studious folks at the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center. Here are the presentations from this year’s classes. Download and share as you wish.
And here’s the cool Wind Tunnel App that makes classroom conversation a tad more tolerable.
Let’s do this on the water when the ice breaks.

We discovered that the iPad Wind Tunnel app is just as good a tool to explain downwind sailing as upwind sailing, and more importantly, why “dead down” is appropriately called “dead down” (lot’s of drag, not much lift.)
Thanks to all who attended this series of classes. There are still a few great ones left at MCSC. Register here.
