Ships, Sailing, Maritime / Name of a meter
English term or phrase: Close Hauled Wind Angle
What does this mean? It's an instrument name, so if anyone knows a snappy definition, I would be very grateful (I was thinking of something like x-suuntaisen tuulen kulmamittari or whatever it is. It is a meter, so mittari can be added if necessary)...

luovikulmamittari
Explanation:
Purjehdukseen liittyvää sanastoa löytyy alla olevasta linkistä enemmänkin, termi viittaa käsittääkseni "luovikulmamittariin" joka on edullisimman luovikulman osoittava tuulensuuntamittari. "Closed haul" on luovia/kryssata/kryssiä.
