Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...

On the lake near my house, we're subject to constant changes in direction and velocity due to the surrounding terrain. Some days aren't so bad, but other days you'll sail along at 6-8 knots, then drop to zero, then 30 seconds later the wind will be coming from 45 degrees off, run for a few minutes, then die again.
