Reality is, either way will be good, Or do a loop, go north going, go south thru on the way home. There in reality is, not a wrong or right way. You may wan to look at weather forecasts, take the open route, which I will hazard is the north route for you, do that on the less windy day, the middle route on the windier days, Altho if normal N to NW winds 10-20 show up, take you pic.
I'll also get you some pics of the mast work I did too. not sure version 1 works well, there will probably be a version 2 at some point.
