I only see an advertisment followed by a blank screen. Does it take a long time to load? It is really tough to Monday Morning Quarterback when not all the facts are revealed. But suffice to say, the skill level of the sailors needs to go up exponentally as you get down to one or two crew members. As a Tyro, you need to go out sailing often, and you need to challenge yourself every day in order to improve. It is why I encourage sailors to join in on racing either as crew or skipper as the race course forces you to focus on and hone your skills like nothing else.
