Re: Keel Position & Forward Movement Question
this is basic dinghy sailing
downwind keel (daggerboard) up almost 3/4 way up some even more, when surfing
upwind al the way down and strapped, body out and forward attacking
upwind body forward
downwind body aft over rudder keeping things in control
also you would do great finding a good sailor or someone to teach you the basics...or taking some classes in a local sailing school if you can
this is in general terms...doesnt apply to all small boats or dinghies but works for most any boat sizes in general
look at pics of racing boats big and small and youll see what I mean
Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
