Racing a 60-Year-Old Bounty II Sailboat on the Detroit River

A fantastic recording of the entire starting sequence to our first ever race aboard Vashti! Our friend takes the position of lead strategist, and guides me through every move, explaining everything that you can see happening from sail trim to the starting signals, how to best approach the starting line, and more! To be fair, this is a long video, but if you are interested in racing sailboats, you are going to love every second. Beginners will love studying it because Ron and the rest of our crew demonstrate and describe a lot about points of sail, sail trim, the rules of racing, and technical stuff on deck!
