Steve Benjamin Rocks Larchmont Yacht Club*
Larchmont Yacht Club hosted a talk by Steve Benjamin on March 3rd, and the event was well-attended by members of LYC as well as by Etchells Fleet 1 members! Steve talked about growing up sailing and his early life, and then gave some insights into how he sails his Etchells as well as his other programs.
Steve approaches the sport with an intense and voracious appetite for testing, retesting and recording results of different experiments. Cataloging the rig settings, sea state and wind ranges, battens and sail twist and trim along with performance in Excel spreadsheets, he assesses what works and what doesn’t. Testing and extensive practice helps perfect his performance.
