The other important ingredient in the above example is information about the lull. Doing this allows the boat to be properly powered up when it needs to be. As the wind fills after the lull, the call will be much the same as calling a puff. What I say to myself is, "Flat water, no ripples for a while, darker line about 200 yards away, coming slowly, with about the same pressure we had before, same direction as before." What I tell the helm is, "Lull for 15, slowly building breeze for 20, back to what we had, initial velocity lift, steadying out to the median. Small increase in 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . 1."
