Sailing Chandlery sponsored sailor George Cousins is back with another article, this time focussing on winning pursuit and handicap events.
With more new dinghy classes being released every few years, one design racing is quickly being replaced by large handicap or pursuit race events. In contrast much of the existing sailing literature, coaching, articles and books focus on one design racing, yet most of us spend the majority of our time racing in menagerie club fleets or at the ever popular handicap/pursuit events such as the Sail Juice Winter series.
Handicap/Pursuit events present different challenges compared to one design racing and there are also subtle differences between a mass-start handicap event and the pursuit race.
This article outlines 10 ways to improve your sailing in this style of racing.
