I was wondering if some of you could give me a few tips to improve my alphas? I rarely sail completely flat venues so I have slower entry speeds and chop to contend with but even after a full planing gybe I am only getting 15/17 knot alphas. Do I need to bear off more before the turn, then sail broad or head up after to get back to the 50m mark ? I would be pleased to get a few more 20 knot alphas :)

Hi Stephen, can you analyze your alpha's in GPSar or GPSresults? When I first started here (tracking my sessions) I noticed that I didn't make a nice curve. All my gybes were cut off at the end. The biggest problem was my exit speed. After i analized the problem, I immediately started to improve the alpha's.
