I’m hoping to find interesting articles relating to RC sailing that may be beneficial to us all and posting them here for all to enjoy.

This is a technique I learned years ago in a T37 seminar. What i found most important is tuning in to the actual waterline of the mark and the sailboats waterline. Smooth water reflections make it a bit harder. This works best when the boat is within 4 boat lengths of the mark, but still works on longer laylines too.
