Re: sailing past close hauled?
Close hauled is close hauled. It is a limiting factor based on your boat. If your boat can go 30 degrees into the wind or in the case of Mark's boat 20 degrees that is a finite limit for each boat in each condition. If you point higher than that, you would be pinching and going slower or sliding sideways.
