Mark Howell was watching and listening as 9 kids and 9 Opti sailboats lined up on the plastic dock at Tempe Town Lake last Sunday afternoon.
Actually, he called it eavesdropping and this is what he heard about sailing theory:
- Hang on to the tiller and the mainsheet.
- Sit on the opposite side of the boat from the sail.
Then, he said, “they pushed them off the dock one by one, and they were sailing. Magic.”
