Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...
As I understand it, the beam reach is more efficient because of the aerodynamic effects of the wind over the sails. You actually get more "force" out of the wind because it doesn't just hit the sail and eddy off, it is allowed to flow through the sails and generate lift (or some approximation thereof).
