Re: Tacking,

Welcome to CF AirborneSF! I'm sure you'll find that you are getting a bit of a lift and that this is the preferred tack!

AirborneSF,

Welcome aboard.

Your handle makes me wonder are you a foiling boat sailor? kite surfer?

Re: Tacking,

I own a older 'C&C', no 'kite' for me. Thanks, all, I would like at some point in time to do some cruising, just taking 'baby' steps now.
