Re: My Check list
It's a good list.
If I may suggest a slight amendment: Under the "Coming In" section, you want to end on a close reach with sails luffing. This is known as the "Safety Position" and allows to resume sailing if necessary. If you point into the wind and come up short you end up in irons. Approaching on a close reach allows to luff, trim, luff, trim, etc. to control your speed up to the last second. Once you kiss the dock you can let the boat turn into the wind, lower sails, etc...
