Also, since you are sailing around, you will need to turn the wheel in the same direction..basically if you don't turn the wheel, you can't sail around..

Kind of like NASCAR. Turn the wheel in one direction and go round and round.

Yes, and saying "va fanculo" is the traditional way to great another sailor.

And these are some of the traditional sailing hats they like to wear. I recommend getting them.
