Optimist yachting summary

Before going yachting, you gotta check your boat. you have to cheek the 3 buoyancy tanks. you have to screw them tight so you don't capsize. Sometimes the weather can change really fast. Even the best sailors can capsize in extreme weather.
Sometimes you need to move around in the boat to stop the wind from moving you side to side.

There is no brakes on a yacht. To stop, you need to steer right into the wind and you can slow right down, if you want to accelerate you need to tack, tacking is going in zig-zags into the wind.
Pandora Pond can be really busy sometimes, Sometimes people crash into each other. So be aware of your surrounding objects.
Don't go past the boids because sometimes you will hit a sandbar and be beached. If you are in doubt just call out.
If you follow these rules above you will have fun and be safe.
