Our navigation courses
As for the maneuvers, the captain gave us some demonstrations with his teammate, to present us the different turns possible in different contexts (head wind, back wind, left turn, right turn). However, after 2-3 turns, the whole team got on board, to our great delight. Everyone was able to participate in the maneuvers and we exchanged the bar again and again.
