Likewise, if racing on a lake, reaching around the banks may prove much faster then beating a straight line across the breadth of the Lake.
I'd like to hear more about this! I have experienced it, and know it.. but I want to know why it is? I note there are usually more lifts close to shore on a given path than their are headers, and albeit might be "slower" and less wind, you can generally make more headway beating/reaching close to shoreline because of this effect.

You have no idea. She can only catch thrown treats about 1 out of 3 times but whenever I get lost she can always smell which way the land is.

If you happen to be off a lee shore at the time, that might not be a good thing!..
