North U Tactics Created by Bill Gladstone
You will learn the fundamentals of upwind and downwind strategy and how to predict and take advantage of changing winds and wind shifts, and also how to respond (on that rare occasion…) when you’re unsure of what the wind will do next. You’ll learn (surprising insights on) how to position yourself to take advantage of current, and critical insights on differences in wind shift strategy upwind versus downwind. In addition, you’ll learn starting strategy to get you positioned for consistently competitive starts.
