Te rautaki mō te haere hautūmū (upwind survival strategy)

Ko te mea haumaru o te haere ki te ihu tonu o te hautūmū (headwind), ka whakahokia he waka e te paenga hau (downwind), ki te wāhi ahu mai ai ia. Kīia ai tēnei tikanga hōpara, ko te ‘rapu me te hoki’; me kī, ka wehe tētahi waka ki te hōpara i te moana uriuri, kia whakahokia mai e te paenga hau; ka taea e ngā waka o muri mai te whai i ngā tohutohu a te hunga i haere tuatahi. He mōrearea te haere me te paenga hau, nō te mea, ki te pūhia tawhitihia tōu waka, ki te kore e huri ngā hau, he mea uaua te hoki ki te wāhi wehe ake rā koe.
