#234. Andy & August record a LIVE session from The QUARTERDECK on all aspects of sail trim. We start with the basics - when in doubt, let it out! - and move on to more nuanced and technical discussions on things like vang & kicker, traveler position, backstay tension, outhaul, halyard tension, twist & much more. Join The QUARTERDECK to watch the video replay and join us for future LIVE sessions just like this! Plus get access to the growing back catalog of videos and documents we keep in the Resource Library.
