Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...

Most times on a coast ( i can't speak for lake sailing) you will have a prevailing wind at certain times of the day but it will normaly jump around a few degrees in my experience. It is really noticeable when you are trying to go upwind (close hauled) but on most other points of sail a simple tweak and you are right back in the sweet spot.

If you play around on youtube you will find the explanation changes throughout the day
