m r the principle of propulsion and inertia. Id est, propulsion occurs when their is wind in thesail, and the boat has forward inertia (e.g. keeps going forward even after propulsion has beenremoved)-
Practical “Take Home” points
 -LUFF OR BACK - The sails need to be luffing or backed in order for the boat to stop-WINDWARD - It is easier to have the sails luff when pointing into or close to the wind-WAIT -
the boat won’t stop instantly, it needs time to slow down
 -FILL & GO - fill one/both sails, and keep sailingElaboration of key points-LUFF vs. BACK luffing takes longer to stop, but is often easier to execute (especially instrong winds), backing stops you quickly, but can also make you go backwards-APPROACH - very difficult when approaching running/broad reach, easier beam/closereach, EASIEST CLOSE- HAULED to Irons.-STOP QUICKLY? wind and wave conditions will affect how fast boat slows (big wavesslow you down quickly, pointing into a strong wind slows you down quickly)-FILL the jib....you control where you go! port side......go to starboard (port tack)DEMONSTRATION: sheet in/out, reaching, vs. close hauled vs. irons., using actualboat, showing the propulsion force on the sails on different points of sailCONFIRMATION - LANDCan students say the three key points? (LUFF to WINDWARD, WAIT, FILL & GO)BRIEFING H20
 Objective: STOP (including at a particular place) and GO (in control1. STOP SIGN!-Stop the boat at a markKey Points:-review approach CH, LUFF/BACK, WAIT (HOW LONG?), STOP at the sign (Orangemark)-OUTCOME!!!!: Braking like a pro-stars give props to the mark while motionless-Take off like a hot rod - FILL & GO*setup marks so that no more than two boats at each mark to minimize collision risk
2. RED LIGHT/GREEN LIGHT-Stopping starting on a whistle-Boats all on same tack, following coach boat-Whistle....RED Light......brake like bugs bunny-Whistle.....GREEN light......accelerate like the road runner Key Points-ibid-Try BACKING your sails-Which way can you back your jib to avoid hitting joe cadet beside you?3. Drag Race-Challenge a boat!-3-2-1......STOP-3-2-1......GO-Who has the best finesse on the brake?-Who has the most horsepower?Key Points-ibid-crew coordination is key-correctly judging wind speed/waves will winSAFETY-Any weather/geo hazards to worry about?-Collisions......NOT NASCAR! (tiller towards trouble, crews lookout, always avoidcrashes)-Stay on the same track (close to each other/ pace setting car/CB)-Hail/wave paddle if in need of assistance-Yellow flag-Red FlagDEBRIEF-group debreif.....did we meet outcomes?-did we hit all the key points-individual debrief.....incoroporate in group, or talk one-on-one seperately, has outcome beenachieved, why/ why not.
