Bummed when my recently repaired 6.3m2 got a hole from a simple slow roll forward on my sail just minutes after getting in the water. I guess the colored x-ply is too UV damaged and brittle. Time to use the new one! I had to get by with my 5.9m2. I love my 5.9m2 too. I was a little underpowered on the way out, but the waves were pretty big right in front of the pier. I had a fun bailout when the floor really dropped.

Waves are fun. I am sure I could have had even more fun if I was more aggro.
