This tutorial is like the real race - you need to complete one lap to prove you can sail! It will not be much harder than driving a motorboat - you will get help to set the sail correctly. The tutorial consists of the following steps:
- First, turn right toward the START gate.
- Watch the HINT marker next to the sail slider - it shows you the recommended sail orientation for the current course. You can also experiment on your own and learn how the boat reacts in different situations.
- Sometimes your destination cannot be reached in a straight line, because it is not possible to sail upwind. In such cases you should choose another, indirect route. This often means sailing in a zigzag line ("tacking").
- Congratulations - you are ready to attend the real race!
