Re: Dinghy sailing - tacking

Sounds like the wind was hitting you on the nose and the channel too narrow to tack and make any forward progress. You need to sheet in tight to point as high as you can, dagger/centerboard needs to be down also. Other than that don't know what else you do. Admit defeat and break out the trolling motor
