I wonder how well a Bravo points into the wind when sailing close hauled ?
45 degrees, 50 or more ?

What is your experience ?

Never carry a compass. The Bravo has surprised me with its windward ability. Never a problem going upwind.

I have been very happy with it, but I couldn't factually tell you degree wise.

Sailing angles also change as conditions vary. (Higher winds expect to sail smaller angles through the wind, and slightly higher in lighter winds)
