Well done, in 10 minutes you cleared up what a full learn to sail book confused! I had some of it, but not as well integrated or a whole single picture like you just showed. The movable boat graphic really helped me see it, and gybe vs tack - never had it shown so well. I somehow never got that it was which part of the boat ( bow vs stern ) moved past the wind, not left / right. I would just move the sail never knowing which term to use! I called everything a tack if the boom was moving sides!

How do you know wind direction on a sail boat.. I know you can tell generally where its coming from by the sail but how do you get a more precise direction. Is that what those streamers I see sometimes are for or are them more for telling how the wind is moving over the sail.

I live in Michigan so I have access to a lot of prime sailing waters so and it has always interested me so I'm going to pick up a boat in the off season. I like the older Catalina boats because they are affordable and plentiful in my area. At first I was thinking of a swing keel 22 with the pop top but I would prefer to have my cabin always ready and I probably wouldn't trailer it. Only benefit to the swing keel as I can see is access. The Catalina 27 is really calling to me. I like the taller cabin and the built in motor. Any thoughts on this

The animation tools being used here are brilliant.

I learned by going out on a sloop one night a thousand years ago. Then I bought a sloop--and learned the finer points simply by sailing it ('tweren't no internet). 25 years later, I'm just refreshing and maybe learning things I never knew. Sailors are rare this far inland. Oh wow, now I know that I need to go sail triangular courses!
Gregory Webster
Gregory Webster - 3 years ago
Wade Patton I have always dreamed of sailing. My dad used to build these plywood fishing boats in his spare time. When I was 10 or so I collected enough scrap to build my own vessel (box). I drug her a half mile to the local pond and for approximately 5 minutes I was captain of my own craft! Then I was swimming. Life came along and I became a single parent to two beautiful daughters. Hard work, parenting, obligations to others. Time has flown and I still have never set foot on a sailboat. I’m 55 now. Caring for my elderly mother. But today I saw a sailboat. A Catalina 18 I think it was. Pretty little thing. Can’t get it off my mind. Now I’m here watching this video. Maybe it’s not to late for an old man to have his dream.

I agree. I have watched about 300 vids before finding this one so I had a pretty good understanding. However, some of the terms are still a tad foreign to me but I'm sure will come as time goes on and I actually get out there sailing with someone who knows all the lingo! PEACE OUT!

Great video. I understand the terms clearly. I am practicing sailing and I've went 3 days now. The problem I have is going in the direction of the wind. Sometimes you can feel it really picks up nicely and you have to balance and other times I feel like it's stopped but it's moving so slowly. How do I overcome this. Deckerboard is fully down and wind is still blowing. What is the proper way to let out the main sheet? When I slow down I try to let go and pull in the main sheet rope. Is this correct? Thanks.
yeadonsailingclub
yeadonsailingclub - 3 years ago
When your sailing with the wind, the wind coming from behind you, then your sail needs to be out. When you are learning I would avoid sailing directly downwind, because this could cause a sudden gybe (your jib will come across first and this is a good indicator a gybe might happen). Sail on a training run, about 5 o'clock or 7 o'clock if you imagine the wind coming from 12 o'clock. This way you can experiment with the sail position. When you are running away from the wind, if you want to slow then pull in the sail. You should have your daggerboard, centreboard or deckerboard almost all the way up when running with the wind. I hope that helps.

can move boat in all directions, except directly into wind.

Taking into consideration this is an introduction to sailing for novices, I can appreciate the statement “Sail boats can go in all directions, just not straight into the wind.” However, if I were doing this video instruction I would be a little more accurate—without confusing the novice, by simply stating that “Sail boats can go in all directions, but very few can sustain movement straight up wind. Most can sail only up to 30 to 45 degrees off the wind”. Needless to say, there are sailboats (including land yachts) that sail directly into the wind. They’ve existed for at least 40 years. I think a novice can be clearly informed about sailing upwind without misleading them into believing that sailing directly upwind is not possible (contrary to virtually all the sailing theory books written before the 21st century).

Very clear explanations. Well done, mate! Minor correction: trimming or easing a sail may change its shape but the main purpose is to adjust the relationship of the sail to the wind. As you hint, the kicker (boom vang) and other lines attached to the sail are used to change its shape. Obviously I know you know that but misspoke. That very minor error aside, it's a real gift to be able to explain things clearly. Thanks for sharing!

yeadonsailingclub
yeadonsailingclub - 4 years ago
Hi, depends on the direction of travel and your boat. If you are heading across the wind or up wind then yes let the sails flap and you will lose power but you will still have some momentum. shifting your weight to the back of the boat will also help slow the boat. If you are heading downwind then letting you sail out will only result in the sail catching more wind and could mean you go faster. if you want to stop going down wind then turn side on to the wind and let the sail flap. If you want to slow then sheet in (pull in) the sail and it will reduce the sail area. Boats with wires (stays) holding up the mast can reduce how much the sail can swing out.

A week of lessons will get you well started, and a club membership may allow you to sail for a year for a tiny fraction of the cost of even a small boat. It's also a great way to build up experience.

Thanks for taking the time to post this up here. Also, that 'Sail Board' program you have linked to is a superb little online tool to illustrate the different points of sail, tacking, gibing, etc. I'll have it and this video bookmarked on my onboard laptop for guests aboard our little Macgregor 26X curious about what's going on.

As a modest gesture of sincere thanks I was just gonna toss a dollar your way towards your new clubhouse by PayPal through your website, but the minimum donation's $2. So, OK...That's not a deal breaker: I can toss about a "quid" instead of a "buck" to our British cousins. But then there's no direct PayPal...Instead there's something called "Just Giving", requiring some new registration. Mindful of the high likelihood that should I register as a "soft touch" for philanthropic causes, henceforth my email will be clogged until the end of time with appeals from well-intentioned groups like "Rescue the Hedgehogs" or "Concerned Citizens Alliance for Safer Goats Milk," I am afraid I'll have to defer and leave you with my best wishes alone.

Nice informative tutorial. For a while I've thought about buying a sailboat. But the only things preventing me from getting one have to do with the keel and rudder. I understand the purposes they serve. But you can't exactly beach a sailboat with those appendages being in the way if there is nowhere else to dock it. And the other thing on my mind is, how do you determine how close you could get to the shoreline before the either the keel or rudder begin to scrape the bottom?
Me Myself and I
Me Myself and I - 4 years ago
+rsuriyop tie an inflated motor boat/dinghy behind the sailboat and pull it along as you sail. If you anchor offshore, use the dinghy to go ashore and to return to the sail boat.
DRCarpetDR
DRCarpetDR - 4 years ago
+rsuriyop DO what I'm seriously considering. West Wight Cruiser. More than a few folks have single-handed cruised the Bahams in one and used it as a their dinghy as well. Heh some folks dinghys are bigger than a wight.
rsuriyop

+Admiral Genius  So if you're unable to find a loading dock on an island out in the nowhere you'll have to lay anchor from far away and be forced to swim ashore?

you dont use a sailboat to go to the beach. try a sunlounger and a 12 pack
yeadonsailingclub
yeadonsailingclub - 5 years ago
+rsuriyop Beaching a sailboat is not something I would recommend, beaching a sailing dinghy is common. Most sail boats with swing keels or bilge keels will settle nicely on a tidal estuary mooring.
