going in a direction as upwind as possible. A kite that points well is one that goes upwind at a better angle than others (more directly into the wind).
Sailing a tight angle upwind, an angle that is a few degrees higher than close-hauled. Depending on a yacht's design, some will "point higher" or sail more directly into the wind and thus sail a shorter course to a given mark on the racecourse.
This is one of several terms that refer to the ability of a sailboat to go upwind - toward the source of the wind. When the sails are close hauled and the boat is traveling efficiently at an angle of about 45 degrees to the source of the wind, the boat is said to be "pointing." Old sailing ships using square sails were not as good at "pointing" as newer ships using modern rigs.

the direction in the sky to which the telescope is pointed. Pointing also describes how accurately a telescope can be pointed toward a particular direction in the sky.

The act or process of measuring, at the various distances from the surface of a block of marble, the surface of a future piece of statuary; also, a process used in cutting the statue from the artist's model.
used for the indirect method of carving: transposes strategic measurements on the surface of sculpture to reproduce, enlarge or reduce it. A pointing machine has adjustable metal arms which mechanically transfer and/or adjust measurements from all over the surface of a model to block of wood or stone. Rodin used this method: enables skilled workers to carve replicas of a sculptor's original handmade sculpture. See also Stonecarver
