The Leeward-Mark Tack
4. Mission accomplished for Presti. He’s headed to the right side of the course and is building speed while Lindberg is finishing trimming the sails after the tack. If the wind shifts right, or gets lighter, Lindberg will have a hard time living on Presti’s windward hip. Presti now controls the right side, and will most likely have starboard-tack advantage should they meet further up the beat.
