Re: Terminology: head up

When I was in earlier stages of learning, I often got confused which way to go when the instructor said 'head up' when I was on a run. I realized that my memory of the term was linked to a kinesthetic sense of easing up on the tiller (like I would be doing close hauled). I think my brain wires make some strange connections.
