Well, I got 3 bullets this weekend. Joe, that book you recommended is great, still reading it. But great info. Don's book and charts stay with me, and I bring them on the boat for quick reference. We had a good steady wind about 10 knts. I decided not to do anything fancy, just a midline start at full speed. Clean air makes a big difference. Don, I adjusted everything I could to keep me moving fast. The cool thing was, is that I knew what I was adjusting an why. Now, I just need to learn tactics.
