Featuring Francois Asselin of the Boston Sailing Center
This past summer, SAIL magazine paid a visit to the Boston Sailing Center in Boston’s North End to get the low-down on the knots, bends and hitches that every sailor should know. Showing us the way was the center’s head sailing instructor, veteran sailor and sailmaker Francois Asselin. In the following nine videos, Asselin not only shows the best and fastest way to ties these knots, but how and when to best to use them. Enjoy!
