Brian gave a couple of us a mini Push Tack lesson. He was showing me on land with a simulator and Ron and Justin became interested. So we all headed out to give them a go. Ron and Justin made good progress. I decided I should have a smaller sail, but didn't feel like rerigging, so I started working on helitacks. I stuck with it and after many tips from Brian including looking at the horizon, keeping my front hand closer to my body, not sticking my butt out, I pulled off a few. It was a great feeling. VERY Fun to be out there with other people attempting the same things I am attempting.
