Rigged up the 8.6m2 race sail and Falcon. This time, a much better result. Power, power, power. It is like drivng a muscle car. Scary. By noon, I was getting tired and my right hip joint started to hurt. Thus, it was tIme to put the muscle car in the garage and rig the freestyle gear! I was able to get planing early, but I ended up way downwind. It later filled in much better with nice strong gusts, but still lots of holes, so it was tough to get back upwind. By 4pm, I was feeling pretty spent.
