Sailing Boat Speed

Book Steve to learn how to make a sailboat go super fast, which is his number one strength in racing. Do you win after a good start? Do you constantly pass boats when behind? Do things just seem to work out around the race course? If you are fast they do! If you are slow it’s painful and you have little hope.

Strategy, Tactics and Starting can be hard to nail 100% of the time, but boat speed is directly under your control and imperative to success! In sailing we have to control the controllable and as they say, Speed Kills! Let Steve teach you the fundamentals of making any boat go fast and start enjoying more success on the water.
