Vago Tide Tactics

At the recent Southern Vago training day, Ed Deacon asked if i would do a bit of training on tidal tactics.  Many of the Vago sailors on the circuit are ‘pond’ sailors and are not used to waters that move beneath them, so I compiled a few rules to sail by when on the tide…. doh, there goes my advantage!rhumb-line

The first Vago open of the season will be sailed on the tide at the Langstone Harbour Race Weekend, so now is the perfect time to learn the finer points of tidal sailing.  Then in July, the class visits West Kirby SC for the Vago Coastal Championship. Last year the majority of the fleet broke 3 key rules within the first leg … let’s not make these mistakes again Vago’ers.

The slides covering the tide tactics session can be found on the UKVA website in the documents library. VAGO REFERENCE DOCUMENTS
