Info and Registration

North U. Boat Speed and Racing Trim
The North U Racing Trim Seminar is offered as a one-day course focusing on boat speed and sail trim.

Race and Win
Bicycles, bobsleds, sailboats. No matter what you race, you’ve got to be fast to win. If it’s sailboats you race, then the North U Trim Seminar is for you. North U Trim Seminars teach the latest in racing skills with an emphasis on practical, proven, real-world techniques that will help you win. Even if you never race the seminar will teach you how sail faster and with better control in all conditions.

Championship Performance
The difference between mid-fleet and podium, between good and great, between crossing and ducking, between holding a lane and fading away, is just a couple percent.  Nothing huge, but the accumulation of many small things that add up to the margin of victory.

Upwind Trim
You will learn the fundamentals of upwind performance, plus advanced techniques that balance angle of attack, sail depth, and twist in both the main and jib in order to optimize speed and pointing in all conditions. Through animated graphics, photos, and video you will see how the champions do it.

Downwind too
In addition, the course covers the latest in spinnaker trim for both symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers.  You’ll learn critical details in spinnaker shape, weight placement, helm balance, and trim that will allow you to sail faster, deeper, and with better control.  And we cover non-spinnaker Jib & Main technique as well.

You are so close…
There’s no magic.  A little here, a little there… It all adds up.

You’ll learn how to trim and shape control performance – upwind and downwind, for both symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers. Special sections on Trim Solutions solve the most baffling problems in performance. Excerpts have appeared in SAIL, Sailing World, and Yachting. You can add the Trim Book to your registration at a discount.
