Description

During this course you will learn to look at the course, at the competitors, at your performance with a new perspective. A numerical approach during the race will help you to improve performance and have a much better understanding of the whole picture, including wind trends, currents etc.

In the course we discuss mostly techniques and "tricks" that can be done with a "normal" electronic system onboard (without any PC and/or advanced navigation software involved). 

So, if you have a compass, a speed sensor and a wind sensor, you should really start the course right now!


Who is the target audience?
