The helmsman, a good helmsman is the most valuable asset of a sailing team. They need to judge how to make the sailing boat drive faster under current conditions, and always control the "steering wheel" in the stern need to have a sensitive touch, grasp the exquisite strength of the group, work with the rudder stock for a long time, which needs strong endurance.
Trimmer of main sail
The trimmer is the engine of the whole boat, directly related to the speed of the race boat. It is easy to make the boat sail fast, but it is not easy to find the extra speed to win. The trimmer needs to keep an eye on the sail, feel the change, and cooperate with the helmsman while keeping the sail shape.
Trimmer of the headsail
The trimmer of headsial is a very important role in the whole team. He needs to maintain a tacit cooperation with the helmsman and the trimmer of mainsail. In the windward stage, the adjustment of the headsail plays a crucial role in the direction of navigation. In addition, in the process of change the side of the boat, the cooperation of the headsail trimmer and the helmsman determines whether the boat stalls while changing the side of the boat.
Middle cabin and front deck
The middle cabin keyboard player, who is the key in all the work, not only controls all lift cables and control ropes, but also plays a role of coordination between the helmsman and the people at the bow . He needs to cooperate with the front deck, release the barrel, send the sail, fix the rope...All details require accuracy and rapidity in the cooperation.
Congratulations to Pegasus Sailing Team!
