What is your tightest angle to sail between close haul?
Between port tack and starboard tack in a close haul,
1. What is the smallest angle you have ever achieved?
2. What are the factors that may increase the angle
I have experienced the angle from 120 degrees to as much as 180 degrees, it make sense to me. But that was what I observed. In theory, it should be just 90 degrees, I don't mind to settle for 100 degrees. But not 120 degree or more.
Am I missing something here?
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
