Here's the eighth installment in our Traveller Tips series, and it's another one from that fiery charioteer David McKee:-

Traveller Tips #8 Following Others:

"It is good to watch what other boats do but not to slavishly follow them. They may have made route decisions relative to other boats or the wind conditions at the time which would be different by the time you reach the same position or on the next lap

At inland venues just because something worked on lap one it will not necessarily work on lap two. Whilst it is good to watch what others do, try to work out why it worked to help you make your decision.

Finally, remember: if you have not been able to understand what was going on, go and ask the experienced sailor after the race - they are usually more than willing to help!"

Helm, David McKee, FF4005
