One Foot at a Time

Footing can be an effective way to keep your position and speed up during a header that you are unable to tack to the lift on. When you encounter a header, ease the main off a couple of inches and your alter your course 5 degrees. This will give you more speed and take advantage of the shift.

To realize your gains you must tack over to the lifted tack. Always try to stay on the lifted tack as it moves you closer to the mark.
