Glad Brian got us going when he did, because the best wind was to be had early on.   It clouded up after my first session and even got a bit chilly. Came oh so close to a monkey duck. Andy happened to see it (although my effort to attempt it just a few feet away from him may have helped) and he pointed out the key to my future success. I am ending them with my feet centered which is causing the board to stop carving as needed. I need to have pressure on the rail so the board will finish carving and I will sail away with a big smile. Didn't get my feet to cooperate this session, but can't wait till next time!
