5 – Starting Strategies Episode Three – The Dinghy Start (Race to Win Sailing Podcast, YouTube)

Okay, I know, this is a video/podcast, I didn’t read it. Let’s not get caught up in technicalities. I’ve taken up sailing this year, and while I had no intention to when I first signed up, I’ve taken part in a few regattas! This past weekend was my third regatta, and my first taking the helm for two of the five races. Did we come dead last in every single race? Yes. Did I have an absolute blast and learn so much? Absolutely! I’ve been reading and watching so much lately, especially since my starts were epic fails. Hopefully next time I can at least come second last for a race or two!

Note: This video sure doesn’t accurately show the wonderful mix of thrilling and absolutely terrifying a regatta start can be.
