ABK Klinic Day 3

Light wind morning--I worked on the 4 styles of UW360, and Andy taught me a fun way of getting fin first, by doing a push tack with only a partial rotation to exit. Lots of fun LWF stuff and I worked hard and tried until I was just dead out of breath tired. Also got my first COWBOY in a long time, semi-planing. 

 

Afternoon was our first planing wind and group voted to sail, no lecture. I made progress on the carve 360 but then started backsliding and lost it. All my planing skills are actually pretty bad and this starkly reminded me. Vulcan attempts reminded me why I quit trying freestyle. I did feel maybe 1 small bit of progress  but just in two jumps and i could not seem to replicate that. Overall good day and it felt good to sail that long and hard. Looking forward to tomorrow with new lecture and new stuff to try in planing wind.
