“I Sail With Only a Tiller I cannot feel the boat with a wheel. If all you had to do was to sail with your eyes, anyone could do it. You must also use all your feelings; the wind on your face, the palm of the hand, the sensation of the boat. I cannot sit to leeward. Then, you can only see the sail. You must always steer to the waves, not follow the sail.”
The great Paul Elvström, who passed away at the age of 88 on December 7, 2016, was always wise beyond his years.
