I was swimming after work when the backstroke flags started blowing around. Checked the trees to confirm and decided to cut the swim short and head to the lake. Nicely powered, but wasn't making anything! - at first not even my fast tacks or ducks. Started trying lay-down jibes, which oddly enough I had never attempted. They are pretty fun. It will be cool to plane out of one, but for today I just got the feel of them. I like the pulling the sail back up part.
