Great day! I gave it 100%, and planed out of half a dozen gybes today. I think I know now what I have to do. I can pull off wicked short radius gybes at high speed (I love the feeling) but I cannot plane out of those. They do help me stay upwind at times. Andy was great. He works his butt off. I saw Sarah Quita Ofringa on the water today. She is awesome. The little groms are way cool and very good. I was great to get wind for all 5 days of the clinic. It is sad to get back to reality, but I need my Tex-Mex fix anyway. Enchiladas Y Mas here I come...
