Peter Vessella sailing upwind in a breeze

by Doug
The Florida Masters Midweek Madness was a two day event that started light on the first day but then got breezy on the second. Peter Vessella (USA) won the event with finishes in the breeze of 4, 1, 1, 1 against a competitive fleet. Here, he explains his starts, upwind strategy, Mark II setup, and how he adjusted his controls. There's a lot to be learned from  Peter's simple explanation.


  1. Thanks Doug - great post. Always good to be reminded of how important the basics are.

  2. Thanks, great post. Speaking from experience, Peter is a freight train in the breeze.
