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.

Championship Performance
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.

In addition, the course covers the latest in spinnaker trim and control for both symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers.

Trim Simulator…
The new exclusive North U Sail Trim Simulator models trim and performance as never before. Years in development, the simulator uses the power of the North Sails Design Suite to model upwind trim and performance with unprecedented accuracy – in both the depiction of sail shape and performance data.

Adjust every control. View from every angle. Test in a full selection of wind speeds and sea states. See the results. Learn.

Use it at the seminar. Use it at home or on-board your boat and practice. Learn More.

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 new seventh edition (release date: October 2015) includes completely updated graphics in 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 at a discount.
