Sail Trim for Cruisers, Rob Gibson

Rob Gibson, author of the RYA SailTrim Handbook for Cruisers, will pass on his huge experience in racing, cruising and sail training. Whether it’s thrashing across an ocean or a day-sail to a country pub, good sail trim will get you there faster, in greater comfort and with more pleasure.
