A new players beginners guide - Turning

In order to successfully turn, a ship must be sailing at a decent speed. Basically, without speed, turning will be pretty terrible. Here is the proper way to turn:
  1. Begin accelerating.
  2. Wait.
  3. Begin turning.
Note: if you try to turn and accelerate from a stop at the same time, you will get a slow turn and you will not accelerate.
Also, depending on your ship, you may want to avoid turning through the wind (the red area on the Wind Indicator). Instead turn your ship the around the complete opposite way. This is counterintuitive, but often more effective.
