nolatom will become famous soon enough
Last paragraph on p 8, about sail trim, is confusing. Don't you want to say that you let the sheet "out" until you get a luff, then "sheet in" a little until the luff stops? A sail that's too loose, not one that's too tight, will luff.

Overall, it's nicely done, with the right amount of humor mixed in with the information.
