Backing up a Sailboat

Corinna Caldwell is my first sailing student to take on the daunting task of backing a sailboat into a slip, under power. It’s like backing up a tractor-trailer in a snowstorm. You’re on your own, it’s not pretty, you hope no one is observing, and crashing the thing is inevitable the first few times. By contrast and in quick order, Corinna mastered the challenge.
