    Success in Light Air with Will Paxton



    Have you ever been drifting around a race course, when suddenly, a boat ghosts by as if powered by an ungodly force?
    It can seem unnatural. We recorded such a phenomenon in this race, when Will Paxton sneaks by the entire fleet in less than three knots of wind. Even better, we got him to tell us just how he did it.

    Do Your Homework



    Finally, we found a race that Will Paxton didn't win! Of course, he claims that was his plan all along, since he was five points ahead in the series. In this podcast, Will gives us some tips for surviving a "Parade Race", demonstrates trimming for speed when you've overstood the mark, and drives home the importance of doing your pre-race homework.

    Podcast 33 - "Don't Panic!" with Will Paxton



    Will Paxton breaks down one of his races in the St.Francis Spring series, and shows us how the pros keep calm and battle back from a rough start. We discuss tack and duck, tactics in a strong tide upwind, the "proper course" rule, and some tips for creating passing lanes downwind. The answer is 42.

    But panicking is something I excel at.
