Laser Sailing Tips

Chris Volkers – CBSC Race Team Member – recently provided a link to a video showing top US Laser sailor Andrew Scriven demonstrating excellent upwind and downwind technique.  I was amazed at the aggressiveness of flattening at the start and after upwind roll tacks.  Downwind roll gybing mechanics were very interesting to note as well!  Also check out the purchase on his vang!
