Weather and Tactics

Stan Honey’s

See the powerpoint!  We have added Stan's 2016 slides as well.  Updated, but without narration.

Agenda:

 Don’t screw up at the start

 Get to the Synoptic Wind before the glass-off the first night.

 Pick and race to your Ridge Waypoint.

 Carefully deal with Cutoff Lows

 Slot-cars to the shift, ideally on “Ocean DW” angles

 Squalls and Cloud Streets in the trades

 Pick the correct corner on the Run

 Approaching the Finish
