Sailing Backwards Activity

The Sand to Salt Sailing Backwards Activity Sheet.

One of the most fun manouevres (and useful) is to be able to sail backwards - but it can be a bit tricky to get going and also has some safety precautions. Done well, it will make you look flash to your friends and get you out of tricky situations on  busy, windward jetties.

Once you've seen our poster on the best technique to use for sailing backwards, try this activity sheet!

Activity sheet asks students to:

  • Explain how to sail backwards by annotating the images
  • Remember the key safety points
