Thanks to last week’s Mindbender winner, Kent Utley, for his answer to the question: “When is a sailboat most likely to make leeway?” Here’s his funny (and true) list: When the keel has fallen off. When the daggerboard/ centerboard is not down. When current is 90 degrees from the bow. When forward speed is less than the aforementioned side current. Novice helmsman. When underwater appendages do not generate any lift (ie shoal draft). When ya got the Rum flu from the night before.
