75 I tried the jump jibes today! Yes! I've always been too afraid. I wish I'd known how easy it is to try. How hard it is to complete them I don't actually know b/c I don't feel close...most often not rotating enough. On the one where I did feel like I rotated well, I jacknifed and fell when the sail caught wind. Today was also a spockfest and other moves I don't even know, but it was great to watch those guys--sailed with F (who was nice enough to demo some JJs in front of me), Mike and Tedro. Many others at Kalmus but egg island was the place to be. I got waaaay powered up later...it was comfortable at first in the high teens and low 20s but IW shows it reached 25 gusting in the 30s by the time I quit. When the guys rerigged and returned on 4.7s I knew it was time to stop on the 5.8. I had my 4.7 but was hungry & had launched from HYC so I stopped for dinner. The others stayed til dark. Got to meet them later for a drink @ clancys.
