Re: Upwind with staysail

I like to look at Vmg and not worry about pointing angle as much as some people do. I've seen some people focus so much on pointing that their boat is going much slower than it would if they bore off 3-6 degrees. The keel on these Amels is a limiting factor and will hydro-dynamically stall while a sail sheeted close to centerline will still be powered. The result of course is the boat is going sideways.
