By pooling the resources of five teams, we were able to hire the best coach we could find. Ed is a two-time Rolex Yachtsman of the Year, a Star and Laser Masters world champion, and an accomplished coach with an amazing eye for detail. For example, during one group tuning session, we moved our mast butt 5 mm back while Ed was helping another boat. When we lined up again, Ed noticed our main looked flatter down low. Heck, we couldn’t even see the difference, and we were looking for it. He didn’t know we made the change and he spotted it. Credibility is key for a coach. Ed has it.
