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.
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.
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.
