Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...

Lucky you, sounds great! I was out this morning in a 16-foot dinghy and I had just barely enough wind to keep the sails full. I alternated sailing and drifting.

Anyway, on this little lake it's not uncommon to pick up some seaweed. If it's dragging off one side of the centerboard or rudder it can cause asymmetric behavior like what you described.
