There seems to be two basic things to think about:
- Start out planing on a reach, in the footstraps
- Remove the back foot from the strap and place it on the lee side between the straps. Put some weight on this "inside foot", and presto, the board turns. This sinking of the rail is how a planing board turns! In non-planing mode you steer with the sail, but not when planing.
