As essential part of sailing is being able to control your speed. To help you get the hang of it, we’ve made a video so that you can watch a Sea Cadet instructor leading a group of cadets out on the water.

The key points to remember about controlling your speed are:

  1. Set your distance
  2. Control your speed – sail setting
  3. Trim
  4. Balance

Watch the video below and make sure you’re following the correct method of controlling your speed while sailing.
