Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...
I wish I could say it was seaweed, but here in Abu Dhabi there just isn't much around...
Hah! I hadn't noticed your location.
It was an awesome day...I wish I could have stayed out longer but it was almost 100 degrees when I got back to the dock around noon. Thankfully it is actually starting to cool down, so I will be out longer all winter long. How is the weather in your neck of the woods?
Again, lucky you, sailing all winter! We just got off a sticky stretch of mid-90s and humid, now we're easing into autumn and enjoying moderate days in the 70s. Soon the leaves will start to change, and sadly in about three weeks we have to pull the boats for the winter.
I like what Donna said. Uneven rigging tension, or a mis-read or change of the wind.
