Jibing while racing
While out choosing a race crew to man or crew for I practiced for a few hours with a skipper who insisted that when jibing , during a race, one would allow the boom to fly across through the eye of the wind, without centering the boom and gradually letting out the mainsail.
I didn't want to argue with the skipper but this was completely against the grain as far as I could tell. I couldn't reason with this skipper.
Does this topic even deserve discussion?
Thanks in advance
