It's a light wind day in the Gorge today so I created a video explaining tacking and sailing upwind by Sinking the Rail. It works on big and small boards. Get out and practice so you can sail upwind the next time the wind shuts down and you have to get back to the launch without planing!

Nice lesson. This is the first thing I learned to do. It is an essential skill to learn to be able to make it back to the launch. I learned from watching Jem Hall vids. According to Jem the rail acts as a daggerboard.
