Re: Shoal Keel: Excessive Leeway

Nope, sorry Shortbus, that's about it, get a boat with a proper keel if you want to go to wind.
Maximize what little advantage you have (low wetted surface) and run like heck on the downwind leg.
Note I have some experience in that department.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
