Tacking

One thing I found was that if you come about too quickly, you are likely to go over (in something like a Laser). I was tipping over all day in one (light winds) until somebody told me to slow it down. I followed their advice and had no problem getting situated and balanced in the tack. Before then, I had a knot on my head and a bloody elbow from that nasty boom.
