Assuming the wind was 90* from your stern, I'd bare off 5-15* near the southern mark, douse, round/tack, and then set again.
Yeah, I thought of that. Boy, that'd be one heckuva busy rounding
Seems like this would be very unlikely for the wind to stay 90* to the beam.
Yeah, well, especially on Lake St. Stupid.
I don't believe a sym kite is very efficient that close to the wind anyhow.
The authors of what I've been reading apparently believe it can be, but I'm in no position to comment. Wouldn't mind having an asym, too, tho.
Thanks for the follow-up. Someday I'm sure we'll get to put it into practice.
