Which way for sheeting controls

Post by MARKDONOVAN » 06 Mar 2018, 08:12

Hi All
Wondering if anyone can tell me which way is normal to bring sails in. Is it stick towards you like pulling in sheets in a real yacht or away? Is it just personal preference?

Usual way is to sheet in with stick towards you.
On some radio it's the only position where trim is efficient, so could be useful as well.

But there is no "rule" on this ;)
