8 What a perfect day! Was not getting full rotation on my 3 BL attempts (not enough speed) but practiced lots of tack-based turning and that worked well. Outside jibing needs work. Olaf suggested the Jolly Roger is "compromising" my sail performance! Oh well, then it will just have to suffer. Lots of man-o-wars--sailed by 3 larger ones, then while running afterward was passing one every few steps. Went for a swim later & la paletera :). I wasn't ready to leave! Considered second sesh @ BIB but was worn out. 2.5 hours sailing before it died around 11:30. Days like this are why I live here.
