After the last patch there is a new message about folding the sail when there are strong headwinds.

As you can see in the screen shot below, this message appears when you have a TAIL wind and the sail should NOT be folded. It then does not appear when you actually have a HEAD wind and the sail should be folded. In otherwords it is backwards.

Literally nobody asked for this tooltip. Just another annoying clutter in the UI.

Yes this happens for me too. The tooltip tells me to close the sails even when they should be open. This tooltip has created a lot of confusion for other members of my guild too. Suggestion to be able to disable it. Or make it only show when heading into a strong headwind.

There's no need for it at all. It always shows if windspeed >= 250, regardless of direction. 

Next they will add a message that tells us to raise our sails.  But that will be done wrong too.  Then they will "automate" sail handling, and mess that up.  After that they will "remove" winds altogether and make sails just cosmetic, but they won't really remove winds, they will just remove the UI.  Then they will add "winds" back, but only in specific areas, that always speed up or slow down your ship, regardless of the direction that you are heading in those areas.  Which may be how they think sails and wind work now.  And thus - the message that no one wanted.

I bet this sounds familiar...
