How to Rig an Outboard Sheet

YouTube video

For years UK Sailmakers has been helping sailors learn the racing rules of sailing with our animated Rules Quiz program. Now we are taking on teaching sail trim and sail handing with a new instructional video series. The free videos will be posted to The first one is a 3.5 minute video on how to set an outboard lead for better sail shape when jib reaching. Upcoming videos will cover how to adjust your jib lead position, getting proper halyard tension, how to set your traveler properly, spinnaker jibes and douses, how to get you jib trimmed faster in a tack, with more to come.
