2nd Session - When we left the beach, it was still cranking. I hadn't actually sailed much (see previous entry), so we headed to Bird. It was amazing to actually make a jibe and stay on the board for more than 30 seconds! It really was fun blasting around. I made a couple of duck jibes - one that I felt like I planed out of. It was hard not to plane out of jibes due to the strong wind. I have to admit though that even though I gave this a "9" and the beach an "8" - I can't wait until my sailing level allows me to enjoy the beach like the other sailors there. They were fun to watch and it really is more exciting.
