Re: Frustration unable to beat against steady wind & current Narr Bay
Beating at 45 degrees to current and wind while pinching along slowly just isn't efficient.
That's when the genny gets replaced with the iron genny and the mainsail becomes a stabilizer at 30 degrees.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
