Why is beam reach (or near to it) the fastest point of sail?
Lot of nonsense here. Beam reach has least drift. Upwind get resistance and is actually slowest point. Downwind with spinnaker can allow you to exceed wind speed and even put uld boats planning. Just go out and see first hand. bumble bees actually do fly.
