SportSoulLife says:

Nice 😀 Sailing without rudder is always a good way to practice boathandling. Spin around a mark without tacking or jybing is also pretty nice, but i am not shure if it works with the 29er tho :/

Ryan Dudman says:

How do they do that.
That is heaps good

Yeah to do it properly you really need a headsail or spinnaker

Cheers I look forward to watching it. I sail a RS Feva XL through my local Sea Cadet unit in Tauranga (NZ) it will be interesting to see if it works..
