A Sun Cat & The Terrain

This sail around the marks was done in 2006. I think we can see what caused our poor performance. The wind was out of the southeast (135 degrees). It hit the shoreline on our upwind leg and bounced off causing our Sun Cat to stop sailing when it ran into a wall of swirling wind. The only good tack was the one with the black marks on the map. It was a good tack and we had clean air. The middle of the Bay would have been a better upwind course. Sailing with a wind and terrain mix is always interesting.
