Parts of a Sail with Mr Sail
Knowing the parts of your sail isn’t the most important thing, but it can be helpful when you’re screaming at your crew they’re going to tear the tack if they don’t attach the topping lift before dropping the halyard!! Ahem… Now that I’ve calmed down. I realize that there’s a lot of nautical lingo in that last sentence. I’ll probably have to make a lot more videos.
In the meantime, please enjoy the following video about the parts of your sail. I made up a little story about Mr. Sail to help my sailing students remember the parts of their sail. None of them have ever forgotten at test time. It’s that good!
