1: Speedy Steps To Rig And De-Rig Your Boat And Sails
2: Steps To Sail Your Boat: A Simple Guide To Sailing

Single handed demonstrations throughout for every trailer sailor, Speedy Rigger Sailing And Video DVDs, NOW SPECIALLY PRICED FOR ALL COUNTRIES in NTSC and PAL DVD, are just what you need to reduce rigging time and understand the basics to improve your sailing! See how you can go from launch ramp to water faster, and learn basic sailing tips such as how to set your sails and "read" the approaching wind. The Rigging Film features approximately 75 minutes of tips, the Sailing Film features approximately 90 minutes of on-the-water sailing and tips. Each comes with an itemized table of contents. As a MacGregor dealer representative, I have rigged and sailed both the 26X and the 26M and am familiar with all aspects of both models. They rig and sail the same; even the bolts are the same. Feel free to contact me for help or advice!
