Sailing Tips

The first thing that you will notice when sailing a wing is that there is no sail luffing…so to trim the sail properly you need both a masthead fly and telltails. When tacking there is no sail fluttering, you need to keep your eyes on the fly and tails. 

A wing sail will point closer to the wind, but the VMG toward the next mark may be better a few degrees more off the wind.  The wing generates lift even on the downwind legs, so keep adjusting and watch for the speed changes. 

The key to single handed wing sailing is the tacking... we have incorporated an Auto Tacking System to simplify the proceedure... which you will appreciate unless you already have an extra arm...
