NEWS: New program version March 2023: Tactics against the wind - Lake Constance Cup

We simulate the wind shifts left-right in the new version of Tactical Sailing (19.03.2023) with a "Lake Constance Cup - regatta fields close to the shore in Lindau, Constance and Ueberlingen". Download the new version here!
"Do left-hand and right-hand shifts actually neutralise each other? One of the questions that is discussed again and again among regatta sailors is whether two wind shifts by the same amount to the left or right about the mean wind direction actually neutralise each other in the course of a cross. A geometric observation is best suited to answer this question", see Tilo Schnekenburger at: http://www.schnekenburger.click (German).
