I think you were the only one who addressed my question about using the boats momentum gaining some distance into the wind on each tack.
All the other posts were still interesting to read, so also thank you.
I asked this question because my experence is that I lose distance into the wind on each tack.
My guess is it would require sailboat with some mass and good boat speed so you have some momentum to work with.
