138 No wonder I was overpowered, it was blowing a solid 20 and gusting near 30 and after work I only had my largest sail. But, compared with teaching 26 11-year-olds who are still wound up from lunch and PE, windsurfing doesn't seem like much of a challenge. I cranked the 5.3 and worked on high wind stuff like fast tacks, pirouettes, DJs and the simple planing jibe which I could definitely use the practice with.
