Force 5 sailing downwind

Recommended Posts

Can the same techniques that are used on the laser downwind ( s-turning) be also used on the force 5? I have heard that the Force 5 is more prone to death rolling than the laser...

I will be sailing a Force 5 this weekend at our club's annual regatta, and the wind is supposed to be 8-10 gusting 20... I feel a little nervous about s- turning and extreme rolling when the wind is that gusty..:blink:

Thoughts?

simply put, I just would like to know what the F5 champion level downwind techniques are.
