24 By far the best day I've ever had at poenisch, and possibly best day this year. NW rocks there. The waves were the biggest I've seen in the bay, what I would call chest high. Quite a crowd too, 20+ sailors. I was way overpowered most of the time but I made some progress. I came down from >1 ft jumps on a full plane for the first time, made a heli tack on the outside (in a lull) and got some DJs on the inside. Made probably 75% of my jibes, a big step for me on a day like today. When I started it was blowing 30 something and gusting to a solid 40 but it backed off and became more managable.
