Roll Tacks - eight steps plus the tiller exchange
I was recently searching around on YouTube for tips on roll tacks. I am also interested in the tiller exchange which is a move that I need to refresh since I last raced a dinghy in the 1970's. This video by Ian Eliot and friends does a great job of breaking down of light air roll tacks into eight steps and right at the end gives us with one extra step - the tiller exchange They use video from the Royal Victoria Yacht Club Race Team. The Salientian channel also has other videos including one on light wind jibing, using the tiller extension to get hold of the main sheet.
