Roger, just a quick clarification on "setting your hips" at 45 degrees to the board centerline - this is something I am not yet doing and really want to understand: Are you saying to set your rear hip further outboard than your forward hip (effectively sheeting the sail close to the centerline)? I would think if you mean the opposite (rear hip inboard compared to rear hip) it would be harder to sheet in - that sounds like more of a downwind hip position. Or do I have it all wrong?
Jay, sorry, I understand that the question has been asked to Roger. But I could not help myself
