Thanks, Alex. I spent yesterday -- a very rare light-air day -- fiddling with sail trim and crew weight and centerboard position on my dinghy. I found on a small boat like that, the most influential factor was degree of heel. The boat would head up quite sharply if I moved to the lee bench, fall off if I hiked it to weather. Was I stalling the sails that way, & that's why it had weather helm?
This has to do with the shape of the hull, as it was explained to me in a sailing course. The stern is beamier than the bow, and when you add weight to one side, the bow wants to go the other way. Nothing to do with the sails.

But Alex's explanation of sail efficiency's effect on steering is not very easy for me to follow. It is easier for me to think about center of effort: when the main is trimmed, the center of effor on the sails moves to the rear and the bow goes to windward. When it is eased, the CE moves forward and the bow falls off.

Giu-

You need to hire a helicopter so we can see what is happening from above the boat... BTW, you look like your wearing an orange prison jumpsuit in the video.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think the diagram that shows properly/improperly trimmed sails does not match the text. Text says the boat on the left has sails inefficiently trimmed, and on the right - has proper trim. The diagram shows what seems to me to be the opposite.

Gui (aka Hollywood), Steven Spielburg is having one of his people call one of your people. He wants to do lunch; talk about some ideas he has.

That is a nicely done production Alex and an inspiration for trying that maneuver on my boat.

Now, if you can put together a video showing how to convince a wife that when a sailboat heels, it is both safe and fun, that would be of great value to me.

Brak's right about the text being wrong...the audio is correct, but the overlaid text is wrong.
