 Tactics - Step 1 - The Weather Gage
The weather gage (less commonly weather gauge) is the favorable position of a sailing vessel relative to the wind.
This is generally any direction upwind; vessels holding the weather gage are able to turn and move quickly downwind to their choice of new positions.
A ship with the weather gage would steal their wind, as the sails are not only capturing the wind to propel the ship, but blocking the wind from the enemy's sails.

 Nat' Academies Press, Assessing the National Streamflow Information Program (2004)
A total of 5,293 gage sites are listed under the five criteria but some gage sites serve more than one criterion, so the actual number of gage sites presently identified as NSIP base gages is 4,424 (Figure 3-1).
For a coastal unit or area of internal drainage, the farthest downstream station or gage location on the largest river is selected, and if this location drains less than 50 percent of the accounting unit area, then the location with the next-largest drainage area on a different river within the accounting unit is selected.
This periodic reassessment of emerging needs may also support gaging of streams in small watersheds or coastal plains where there is a perception of insufficient coverage and common sense dictates the inclusion of gage sites that may not be included by rigidly applying the five current criteria.

 Battle of Lowestoft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dutch were desperate to prevent a second English blockade of their ports, after the first was broken off by the English for lack of supplies.

 USNS BRUCE HEEZEN
Simultaneously, because the importance of accurate short-term weather forecasts had become apparent during the war, a new emphasis was placed on expanding the meteorological sciences and their applications to naval warfare.
On a day-to-day basis, ocean and weather observations are collected worldwide from civil and military sources, processed ashore, and used to make both oceanographic and meteorological forecasts in near real-time to support the Fleet wherever it is operating.
With the end of the Cold War, particularly with the diminishing probability of having to fight a major war on the open seas, our emphasis is moving away from studying and understanding the deep ocean basins to supporting the likely necessity of fighting close to land in a regional, expeditionary context.
