HOW TO CAPTAIN THE BOAT
- No matter how well you make your boat, victory demands a skilled captain. An even wind, for instance, moves the boat faster than do frantic puffs.
- Practice long, steady breaths. Your breath should hit the sail directly behind the sail and just below the center.
- If you’re too high, blowing downward, you will force the bow down, slowing the boat. You’ll blow your chance to win.
- Position yourself so that you are blowing from behind the boat and slightly up, using a gentle, steady breath.
