Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for an instructional video that would show "best practice" methods for tacking, gybing, spinnaker raising and lowering, and trimming on F18 boats like our 2007 Tiger. Has anyone created one?

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

Check out the links below. Even though they are not Tiger specific they do address F18. The Wildcat training video is nice and shows how things are done. You can study the techniques up close, over and over again. John Casey's F18 video addresses more the attributes of a F18...specifically on a Infusion. But these also apply to a Tiger. Might be best to go to a few regattas and watch the other boats...mimicking their moves. This is by far the fastest way to learn.

Good luck in your quest.

Zach,

Nice find. I forgot about the Mischa videos (I was at the event). Hopefully these will help Mark.
