North U. Boat Speed and Racing Trim
The North U Racing Trim Webinar is a four session 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 Webinar is for you. North U Trim Webinars 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 webinar will teach you how sail faster and with better control in all conditions.


Asymmetric Spinnaker Trim
Asymmetric spinnakers – so simple, so complex. The simplicity of asymmetrics, with a fix sprit, makes it tricky to optimize performance over the full range of wind angles and wind speeds. With so few controls, what can you do? In a word: Plenty.
Asymmetric Reaching Trim seems easy – but great asymmetric speed at all angles involves adjusting shape and technique to suit the conditions, boat, and sail…
Asymmetric Running Trim is particularly tricky, as you can’t square the pole back. We teach techniques that will allow you to sail faster, deeper, and with better control. We’ll explain how changes in tack height, sheet trim, lead position, weight placement and helming provide nuanced but critical improvements to performance. We’ll also explore the opportunities, advantages, pitfalls, and techniques of wing-and-wing asymmetric sailing.


North U Trim Book
Written by Bill Gladstone, the North U Trim Book covers every facet of sail trim, boat speed, and boat handling. It is the compliment to the acclaimed North U Racing Tactics. The seventh edition includes over 200 information packed pages. 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.
