Introducing out Windsurf points of sail poster!

If you've recently started windsurfing you may have heard about the windsurfing Points of Sail - but what are they?

The points of sail are the different directions or angles that you can windsurf on, relative to the wind. And, when learning to windsurf, it's handy to know all of them by name, and the associated sail and stance settings, in order to windsurf efficiently.

This informative poster illustrates all the different positions in an easy to understand format with all the names, angles and rig settings for each point.

Learning the points of sail is vital if you want to be able to do more advanced manoeuvres like going up and down wind as they show you the position you need to be in and where you can and can't windsurf!
