Re: Sailing close hauled?

I re-read this whole thread and this may be too obvious to even mention but since it is good trouble shooting to start with the easy stuff first here goes.

If you have bad enough current tacking through 180 degrees may be all you can get.
For example if your speed is 6 knots and the current is 2 knots you might be lucky to get 110 degrees with everything else perfect.
