Re: Wind indicator NOT for mast top

I've sailed a few boats without vanes. In those cases a tell-tale on the shroud solution is certainly inexpensive enough to see if it works for the op.

If the windward tell tale points toward the leech of the mainsail = close hauled
" the center of the mainsail = close reach
" mast = beam reach
" jib/genoa = broad reach

Greatly simplified, of course, but it works.
