Re: Wing on Wing

Agree with Faster

Wing on wing is also my least favourite point of sail of sail. I teach it because it can be necessary. I had to go DDW to go between a reef and Antigua. Sometimes you need to go DDW in a channel.

Broad reach and and gybe is safer and much more relaxing. It can also be faster especially with a asymmetrical.
