Steering and Sail Adjustment

There are two important parts of the blokart that sailors must be aware of before starting to sail. First, the sheet. This is not the sail, but the rope that controls the position of the sail. By pulling in the sheet, the sail moves towards the centre of the blokart, and by letting out the sheet the sail moves away from the centre. Figure 4 and figure 5 outline the movements of both the sheet and the sail.

The arrows indicate the movement of the sheet and the resulting movement of the sail.

The second part of the blokart to be aware of is the handle bars. This isn’t a trick question… they simply steer the blokart.
