There’s no better maneuver to shake the cobwebs off practicing a bunch of mark roundings and how you’re going to get the spinnaker up and down. Upwind, it’s pole out or up, tack out, sneak the kite, bear away, or gybe set. Downwind, make sure you run the gamut of douses: windward, leeward, Mexican. If everything goes sideways, learn to letterbox. Know who does what, when, and in what conditions. In case your race committee decides to get creative, you should be able to do it all to starboard, too.
