Points of Sail...is this right???
Most Points of sail diagrams I have see are like circles and have the wind coming from one direction while the boat moves around it. Thats backwards to me because I want to have the boat pointed in one direction and have the wind move around in relation to the boat. I also want to add the windex on the mast into the equation in relationship to the beam. I wanted to see if there was any correlation between the angle of the windex and the angle of the beam, a quick way to determine the reach. I am very good at close hauled, seems to be the easiest, its when I am reaching that I am in a not sure zone. So I made this diagram to show the relationship between the wind and the windex and the beam and jib...is this correct?
