Someone at my club commented today that he's generally much better at gybing from starboard to port than port to starboard in a serious breeze, and I it made me realise that I'm actually better at tacking and gybing the Canoe from starboard to port rather than vice versa. In my case at least its running round the boat and getting into position that's the issue much more than hands.
Is this unusual? Are there any special coaching tricks other than get out there and practise?
I suppose, thinking about it, isn't sailing quite unusual in requiring the competitor to be almost completely ambidextrous?
