The Rules as Tactical Tools
The Rules as Tactical Tools is an in-depth look at tactical positioning at key areas around the race course (upwind & downwind legs, at marks and at starts), with an analysis of the important rules to know in each. Dave includes spectacular video of many of the tactical situations he discusses. Common scenarios are analyzed from the perspective of each boat. You’ll see how to play through the moves and counter-moves to get to your best solution. This is an enjoyable and educational presentation for all levels and types of racers and race officials.
