What''''s more efficient?

Very simple (obviously oversimplified) ....
You need to tack on the favorable wind shifts; and, you need to be on the side of course that the wind is coming from.
Practice while using a handheld GPS using the **VMG** function as the indicator - automatic course optimizer!
