How to use the NED sail simulator to trim sails
Mouse over each of the elements of NED to see what function they perform.
NED teaches how to correctly trim the sails on any sailboat with a mainsail and headsail.
The sails will be correctly trimmed when the boat speed reaches its maximum for any particular wind speed and direction.
You are able to turn the boat into or away from the wind, let the sails out or tighten them up and adjust the speed of the wind.
