If you have some yarn tied to the Shroud at about eye level, you won't be taking your eyes off the horizon in order to look at the windex. That simple bit of yarn will tell you more than some of modern fancy tools out there.
Did have an accidental gybe or two... more to failing to read the wind shift then my steering.
