  1. new to sailing,"when in doubt, let it out" . does that work for gusty winds on a tack as well? 12knots with 30 knot gusts. how about recovery after short strong gusts?

  3. I think she was going to show us how to stop a broach as a solo sailor since that’s how she sails. But anyway, I appreciate the info.

  6. I avoid spinnakers.If I ever wanted that much more s/a for'd I'd build a square sail and keep it close to the deck.

  7. Have. Crew that does this without being told

  8. The broach is caused by the pull of the spinnaker sheet when,as usual it is lead to the stern. If a barber(barbour?) hauler is rigged the the pull will not be aft of the centre of lateral resistance but precisely on it.

  10. I sail a lot single handed, down wind I never use the mail, to big, easily damaged and I only have 1 on board. I sail with head sails only I have spares, no broach, no gibe, no worries

  11. I'd be more impressed if she had a dead animal lashed to the backstay like Skip Novak.

  12. Skip to 0:40 if you want to skip the BS… skip to 0:59 if you already know what a broach is.

  14. And I always thought this was. Just called rounding up. I allus thought a square run when you heel to windward was a broach. Or maybe I just forgot

  15. But you didn't broach… Would you take advice on how to change an engine from a guy replacing the headlight? Yeah – he's got the hood open but…

  16. In a gust the apparent wind comes aft, the trimmers should ease to the new apparent wind angle and trim on when the guest has passed and apparent wind moves back forward. Both sails should be trimmed constantly but the spinnaker is critical. As the power comes on you ease to get the windward spinnaker edge projecting and trying to curl. If you don't ease you will heel, lose the rudder and broach. You should also advise what not to do, such as trying to oversteer out of a broach when have already lost the rudder grip on the water will kill the boat speed and any chance of steering out without fully depowering as your mates go by. Sometimes a little luff can depower and reduce heel, keep the boat moving then give a sharp kick away and snap the kite back into shape.

  17. Get a boat with a long keel and a keel mounted rudder, and you will avoid most of this foolishness

  18. Can the boat capsize if it broaches too much?

  19. What is the kicker? The vang?

  20. Do any of your staff give a stuff about their pronunciation and whether they can be understood or do they just do not give a stuff anyway? How many words can they produce in the space of one. This is sobadthattheideos triival and useless. You might realise that the primary function of Yachting unworldly is communication.

  21. I always thought that a broach was when a boat slew around when a following wave attacks it from behind. The boats with large transom and a narrow front angle are the one which suffers from and a centreboard does not always help at all.
    Broaching occurs when a following wave lifts up the transom due to its large displacement and at the same time the weak bos dig in the water where lateral resistance is met and so the boat heels over and the transom overtakes the bows. With a centreboard the lateral resistance is greater low down in the water while the wave displacement up top will tend to rotate the boat to capsize it. It is related to the broaching that is mentioned in this video but instead of the rotating torque is provided by the leaning of the mast providing a torque to rotate the craft on the surface of the sea, the following wave will produce a more dangerous flip over as happens in high waves. The following wave broach can be avoided if one releases a drogue parachute or anything that may drag the boat or a large rudder which is sensitive to the quick corrections of a good skipper.
    With a large very high following wave , well one cannot do much as the dynamics of the peak of waves are complex and no boat can handle it so the philosophy is to either stay in harbour or anchor down and be ready to submerge a few times.

  22. Why does EVERY sailing video have these long intros?? 37 seconds of nothing until you get to the information. Jesus.

  23. Is a kicker the Jib sail? Thought these terms were standardized… go figure

  24. Do Brits ever call the kicker a vang? I bet Germans prefer Vang…"Reduce ze tension on ze vang, Schnell!"

  25. This is a RACING technique, not, necessarily, a universal sailing technique, as the title suggests
    The primary reason for having a spinnaker up in this much wind is if you are racing, and really, the ONLY reason to be using a spinnaker.
    Easing the sheet, alone, on a spinnaker does NOT spill the wind. Thus, it does NOT necessarily help your situation. You are more likely have to have to throw the sheet, or tack, loose completely to have enough effect to prevent a broach.
    "Kicker" is a slang term for vang, even in Great Britain.

  29. Wrong order.
    Whether people have gained experience or new to the game, the first thing to ease is the spinnaker.
    If your game is on the main is properly trimmed, therefore the vang is eased.
    The main trimmer should be busy in keeping the main from too much backwinding as speed increases.
    When we are racing it goes in that order, even single handing.
    With an experienced crew, the driver should rarely make adjustments for trim. Feeling the boat, the spinnaker trimmer is responsible for keeping the boat on its feet and the vang trimmer accelerates the boat through the waves.
    Working as a team, a cadence is maintained through the puffs and waves that realizes increased speed and a smooth ride.

  32. Friend, avoid spinnakers on a long trip. They are not worth the risk.

  33. When Pip is saying to ease , does this mean to turn the boat leeward ..

  39. subtitles needed for aussi lady….good info though….watch Kevin Costner in the movie Waterworld…muto uses the centerboard as a rudder….trims the sails…and uses his body to gain advantage over the "smokers".

  40. Pip has got a quiet confidence that is assuring….  Where does she teach, any web sites links? thanks…

  41. this is interesting. if a boat is overpowered it is desirable to flatten sails by tensioning the vang. but to avoid a broach release the vang. very interesting

    Reply
  42. This is a great video. I find that on boats with a larger main sail, releasing the vang lets out enough pressure to derail most broaches. Also, on more severe broaches, the boom will hit the water, tighten the main, counter-effects the release of the main sail and make it harder to get out of the broach. Letting go of the vang, will allow the boom to raise as it hits the water and help recovery. It can also save your boom from snapping where the vang in anchored. The first thing that needs to go is the vang.
