It should be noted on your diagram that the wind direction as shown is the apparent wind direction as it relates to the same angle as the windex. The true wind direction would usually be at a slightly different angle than the apparent wind direction. In other words, the apparent wind direction would be the resultant vector of the true wind direction and the boat direction.
