STEERING

  1. STEERING
When you're on the correct course, find something ahead that lines up with a piece of the boat. This saves always staring at the compass. But, don't get transfixed by your steering mark and ignore what is going on around you. ALWAYS keep a good lookout all around especially behind you.
STEERING TO WINDWARD (Towards the wind or 'ON THE WIND') With the sails trimmed correctly the helmsman must guard against the wind getting on the other side of the sail. The first indication of this is the front of the mainsail or jib starts to belly or back so steer the bow away from the wind.
STEERING OFF THE WIND (Away from the wind) Here the helmsman must not let the wind get on the other side of the sail or it will gybe violently as above. The first indication of this is the back of the jib lifting. Steer the bow towards the wind. (With a tiller push it towards the boom)
