Americas Cup and US Sailing make new website
US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing joined forces with
Americas Cup and Ian Murray to start a new website called
www.startsailing.org, for people who want to learn how to start sailing. It
describes from the types of boats to where to sail and everything in between.
Look at the new website on AmericasCup.com or ussailing.org.
When the wind comes across the boats on opposite sides, the boat with the wind on the left (port) side must give way to the boat with the wind on the right (starboard) side.
When the wind comes across the boats on the same side and they are not overlapped, the boat behind (clear astern) must keep clear of the boat (clear) ahead.
When the wind comes across the boats on the same side and they are overlapped, the boat on the windward (upwind) side must keep clear of the other leeward (downwind) boat.
The start is critical
