How do you suggest I sail upwind to the windward mark when there is an adverse current? The strength of the current is the same at both sides of the course. Should I head more towards the opposing current to keep the exposure of the hull to the current to a minimal? E.g. should I sail more on closed-haul than a closed-reach if the hull is less exposed to the current on a close-hauled c.f. on a closed-reach? I.e. to minimise the leeway even thu' the boat has more speed on closed-reach than on closed haul?
