  Wind direction
  Posted by: ppine on Oct-20-13 12:23 PM (EST)
 

Kayamedic is right about apparent wind which is well known among sailors. I have never liked headwinds. Sometimes it is impossible to make headway at all. Tailwinds, following seas can be really fast but really dangerous once you start surfing with the ever present danger of pitch poling butt over teakettle. Everyone's idea of windy is quite different.

I like to put up a sail using a bedsheet with two canoes for tailwinds.

What I like most is no wind or light winds under say 10 knots.
