Dang that was fun!!!!!! I finally figured out how to rotate a BL on port. It turns out my port BL rotationile dysfunction had nothing to do with port tack, but rather it had to do with the wind direction relative to the waves and how to deal with that. The answer is incredibly simple. Duh! It took one last nasty back slapper for me to put my neurons in gear and figure it out. Mike "Loop Inducer" Campbell called a peer-pressure forward loopfest a couple days prior, and I said heck yeah, what a fantastic idea. I "tried" 2 straight away, but they looked like really weird, messed up catapults off a wave (Mike's words, and I'm not one to argue.) Anyhoo, they were the first attempts on port tack, and they were not as good as the first attempts on starboard tack were last July, but like many things in life, work, and windsurfing, i will continue to chip away at it. PSB: Negro Modelo PSG: Cancun Mexican w/lots of happy people.
