How to Sail a Boat Steering with the Tiller Rudder Free Online Sailing Lessons

One of the first skills we’re going to need to learn before we go sailing is how to steer the boat, a small sailboat like the Colgate 26 is steered with a tiller not a steering wheel which you maybe more use to from driving a car. The tiller is this wooden bar and it is connected to a post that runs through the boat, on the other end of the post underneath the boat is a blade that we’ll be able to manipulate by turning the tiller back and forth. That blade is called the router and it’s actually what steers the boat. When I move the tiller to the right side of the boat, or the starboard side in sailing terms, the blade underneath the boat is actually pivoted to the port side of the boat, when.

I do that we deflect water to port which pushes the stern to starboard and the boat will then turn to port. That’s a very hard thing to remember and not the way to learn how to steer a boat, it’s more important when you’re steering a boat to get in the habit of watching the front of the boat and seeing if it’s turning in the direction I want it to go. In other words, if I have to keep remembering to myself, well if I want to turn to port or to the left, I need to remember to pull the tiller to starboard, or to the right. When we’re sailing in tight situations, that can get a little bit confusing and possibly a chance to make a mistake. If I watch the front of the boat and I pull the tiller to.

Starboard and I will notice the boat turning to port if that’s where I wanted it to go, then I know I’m doing to right thing. If I’m watching the front of the boat and its going in the opposite direction I want it to go, I just know that I have to move my tiller to the other side. So this is the tiller and when we’re sailing, when we want to go straight, we’re going to keep the tiller nearly in the center of the boat but more important, we’ll be watching the front of the boat or the land in front of us or the horizon in front of us and seeing if the boat is actually going straight. If I want to turn the boat to the left or to port, what I’m going to do is pull the tiller to the right,.

Watch the bow of the boat, turn to the port and I know I’m turning the correct direction. When I’m steering therefore, I always want to be facing in the forward direction. So I’m looking forward and I’m steering the boat and I’ll be making maneuvers from that direction.
