Sailing Shack's a Winner

Well after my first race back in a Laser full rig for some six years where I ended up fourth trying to sort out the new boat and the local knowledge required for lake sailing the following race we posted a win. The breeze was light 5-6 knots and very shifty. However after studying the Ben Ainslie Laser campaign DVD and book I can assure you Ben actually knows what he is talking about! Roll gybes work and for the last ten years in Lasers or any yacht for that matter I have realised I just have not roll tacked hard enough. My son Ben won his race in his Minnow too so that was a good day at the sailing office. But as they say you are only as good as your last race so this week we tackle Albert Park lake once more.
