Yes, "high mode" versus "low mode' indicates sailing a higher angle at lower speed (upwind, the opposite downwind). For example, if you're headed upwind to a mark, and you're just barely able to make the mark you might sail a "high mode" that is slightly slower to avoid having to do two more tacks to get around the mark.Jugglajon wrote: ↑Fri Jul 23, 2021 4:43 pmI 've been trying to translate the sailing jargon too. I think (likely to be wrong) it is talking about angle of the craft to the wind and its speed.
High Mode - High and slow, Low mode - low and fast is as far as I've managed to translate so far. After that it always references sail set ups...
Any sailors/racers that can help out?
