Re: Beating to windward

head winds is why gods made tacking in weather. is totally unnecessary to try to push a boat into a wind--wind is what fills sails--when heading into it, there is none with which to fill sails. try a bash for 400 miles then say how much fun it is, especially with weather helm on a fin/spade sloop.....have fun.
as for sailcruising sans sails-- many many seem to be into this weird activity. must have unlimited funding....
