  • For Bruce Worthington or, maybe Janette - on Bruce's Sailing Home pattern

    I'm confused - one of the few times I actually read the instructions

    The sailboat is sailing away from the viewer.

    But Bruce's instructions for shaping the sails -- ", , , you will need to shape them down on either side so they appear to be billowing out toward you."

    If the sails billow towards the viewer, then the wind is coming from the wrong direction for the sail boat to move forward. And I understand how tacking in the wind works.

    I would do it so it looks right to you. Which pattern is it? It could be running down wind.

      It is his "Sailing Away" pattern. I noticed on the picture that came with the pattern that the sails looked as though the wind was blowing against the boat.

      I know how sailboats tack to sail against/across the wind. But then I read his instructions that come with the pattern.

          My take on it was that it is running down wind. So I cupped the sails inward. Sailing the boat wing and wing. My version BW Rolf (600 x 378).jpg

            Thanks, Rolf. Yours looks like the wind & sails are moving the boat forward. Appreciate the picture.
