55 Today went incredibly better. I was barely tired at all and did seven races no problem. The last 4-5 races were without break. Seems like that would be harder than yesterday, but the marks were moved around a little so you didn't have to go as far downwind, and that plus 2 mph less wind made a big difference. My finishes got more consistant too, and I only fell once during the second round. I realized that the guys are much faster, but I can do well if I get a good start, don't fall, and stay planing, so I will try that again tomorrow. Also for tomorrow is to try for wider roundings so I can plane better to the next mark. Everyone, even some pros, said I was rounding too close, but it was counterintuitive to swing wide and that is hard to overcome.
