Product Overview

This booklet is the advanced sailing lecture notes of Captain Tim Johnson, PE, of the Boston Harbor Sailing Club. It is supplimented with nearly 50 color photographs of the theory discussed in the lectures notes. The main topics include: sail trim, wind control, sailing with a spinnaker, heavy weather, racing techniques, night sailing lights. Groups of photos of setting, gybing, and taking down a spinnaker are among the many photos which feature BHSC members taking the weekend class. Before and after photos of traveler setting as well as jib sheet fairlead positions in relation to jib sail trim are compared. Polar plots for racing are explained and analyzed for general principles. The use of this booklet is best exploited when the reading is followed by two days aboard a J29 under various types of weather conditions.
