Depends on how your tabs are set up. Mine are not 90*, they're closer to 70* from each other. And the wind vane is reading apparent angle, not true.

Re: How high can you point?

This " " High!

Everything, but everything contributes to pointing ability. One of the best (most concise) write-ups I came across was here:
Catalina - Capri - 25s International Association

Yeah it's written in VERY basic terms, but it's a great pre-read to some pretty heady material that this subject usually brings up.

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
