Here's a few simple exercises you can do at home to improve your racing skills. They'll give you
instant feedback on your answer, give you the correct answer if you make a
mistake, and they won't keep track of your score, so you won't be graded! They
get easier when you do them on a regular basis, so come back often and run
through a few!
Any suggestions on other exercises you'd like to see are certainly welcome.

New Compass Headings
Do you struggle to determine the heading for the upcoming leg? Common courses are covered here
(windward-leeward, Olympic). Or practice calculating /
guessing your new heading after tacking or gybing. See the following sections for links.

reciprocal courses to your heart's content.
The quiz gives you a randomly chosen heading, and asks for the heading on the next leg.
