Re: sailing past close hauled?
More vectors at work. Gravity. Altitude is lost to allow for more forward vector.
excuse me? Whether or not this concept can sail directly into wind or not... the fact remains that the sum of the vectors is forward no matter how small it is.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
