    Correction:  "weather mapping" should read "weather routing."
    
    Also of note: Other than racing the destination will seldom be directly
    upwind*. Most likely a short leg and long leg. There are rules of thumb
    on which to sail first.
    
    *The exception to this is when we plan to sail from Michigan City, IN to
    Chicago, St Joseph, MI or Southport, MI. Inevitably our chosen
    destination will be directly on the nose. Oddly, the same returning :-)
