Racing: Tactics

When your boat handling is second nature and your boat speed second to none, then tactics will win you races.  Most situations offer just two choices: Keep going or turn (tack or jibe), and yet it seems so complicated.  North U Tactics programs give you the tools to know your options and make best choices.
