Re: Wind Direction Question from Noob...
The wind has a lot to do with the heating of the earth and when the hottest times of the day occur, with pressure, with density, etc. It changes depending on the season, too. Of course it will be different where you are, in the summer where I am we *generally* see the wind decrease in late afternoon and early morning has the best wind. Plenty of times we've woken to terrific sailing wind, dawdled over coffee and an hour after we left the marina: gone. Although, depending on if a front or squall is coming through, that may change day to day.
The most efficient point of sail is a beam reach.
