PostHeaderIcon Wide-n-tight

a traditional leeward mark rounding where you approach the mark wide and then turn to round the mark so close that you could reach out and touch it as you head up to a close-hauled course. This is a tactical rounding, and one that requires you to sail slightly downwind of the leeward mark to execute. But it is also the rounding more likely to give you cleaner air around the mark and to put you in the controlling windward position in the exit lane. Compare to: apex rounding.
