1. Don't pinch before coming about. Bear off if necessary so you have some speed to work with.

2. Don't stall the rudders by over-steering.

3. As you come through the eye of the wind, ease out the main so that you don't weather vane. As the hulls approach the new tack(ie. close reach) , harden up the main to accelerate out.
