It''s a snap.

1. Point the boat where you want to go.

2. Let out the sail(s) until they flap a little.

3. Pull in until they just stop flapping. Don''t pull in any more.

4. When you change direction, repeat 1-3.

You won''t win any regattas like that, but it''s good enough for now. Sailing is a simple thing.
