Very good and accurate, but if youll forgive my foray into this topic, having done a lot of sailing I developed my own ,,much simpler and more appropriate to us sailing types.

1 No Wind
2 Too Little Wind
3 Too much wind
4 Way too much wind
5 Blammo


...
Appropriate for sailors anyway.

Very good article ,,,Thanks A
