Backing Under Sail

You prefer to back down the fairway and into your slip, but your engine won't start or you don't have one......just back down under sail.

Re: Backing Under Sail

Not a fender in sight! Guess it is a club boat. Still it is a nice demo of backing up.

Inspires me to try it one day as I have little control of my old lady under power in reverse.

Re: Backing Under Sail

We do it all the time if we think there is some grass on the keel. No need to start the motor.

Re: Backing Under Sail

I have to say, only really helpful if the winds blowing the way you need it to . Or the wind is blowing at all!

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
