I felt like I was anywhere but Lake Travis. There were tons of people enjoying the beach and there were so many people sailing regular size/ regular looking gear. It was incredible. I must have tried a zillion pops, with just one seeming a bit unlike the others, in that it was not only a pop, but felt to have a slight board rotation. I was very deliberately keeping my weight forward. Started nailing the fast tacks...which was good backwind, weird sail position handling skills. Everyone seemed so happy, it was like a tropical vacation party.
