( frenzied driving x frenzied rigging ) / no time = frenzied sailing. On the first run out, I guess I was still in a frenzied state because when I hit a little ramp to jump, both my feet blasted out of the straps and the board crashed in front of me. I wasn't even trying a willy skipper. Picked myself up, dusted the cabbage heads off, and went at it again, only to have a similarly messed up jump moments later. It could've been the frenzied state I was in, or it may have been because I was gingerly holding the boom with my stigmata hand, and the ginger spread to my feet. After the second mishap, I made a concerted effort to relax and enjoy the ride. It was fairly difficult, since the scab on my hand tore off almost immediately, causing every move that normally would've been a 2 hander to be turned into somewhere between a 1 and 1 1/2 handed manoeuver. Completed my first dry upwind 360 during this short 30 minute session. PSB: I don't recall PSG: Mamma Mia's
