No Sail Zone

The no sail zone is not a point of sail, but an angle, approximately 40° to 45°, either side of the direction of true wind. This zone is where a boats' sails cannot generate any lift and therefore cannot sail. For boats to head up wind they will need to sail a zigzag course using close hauled/reach points of sail
