Thanks to last week’s Mindbender winner, Ben White, for his answer to “What does the term “pinching” refer to when sailing upwind?”: ‘Pinching’ is when one attempts to sail higher or closer to the wind than possible when close hauled. The inner tell tales will fly up indicating that the air flow has become detached and the boat will begin to slow down and likely stand up.
