Re: Downwind Sailing

Further to what Rich states, your apparent wind is lowest going DDW, which is another reason DDW is slower than even a very deep broad reach. As your apparent wind approaches 0 knots because of a...

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Okay, keeping it positive... the collective "we" can offer suggestions that will make reefing easier and faster so that when conditions warrant, it won't be a big deal. As many have said (and as you...
