NED Sail Trim Instructor

"The graphic below is representative of a real wind meter on a sailboat. You'll notice that the red triangle represents the relative position of the wind to the boat. On a real wind meter, the boat always faces up because you're always behind the meter. With NED, for simulation purposes and to give you a feel that the boat is turning when you active the helm button, the boat turns with the helm but it immediately flicks back up to it's normal proper position. You'll notice the wind direction and the HDG (compass heading) have changed appropriately. Hover over NED's components to gain a better understanding before you start poking and clicking. Then, please enjoy NED." -
