The Manoeuvres

Getting Under Way

One must bring the boat to a site which offers ample space to leeward, and where there is no risk of colliding with other boats.

Generally speaking, as soon as one is ready to hoist the sails, the boat must be placed facing windward in such a way that the sails spill freely. Do not haul in the sheets until the boat is under way and do not attempt to prevent the mainsail from swinging freely by holding the boom.

Before hoisting sail, check the boat and the emergency equipment.
