This was a really hard day to sail. I watched Gordon go out on the 4.6 and not plane much, and it was looking really hard, so I derigged my 4.7 and switched to 5.2. I regretted that pretty quickly. I was beyond overpowered. Yet I also struggled to plane at times. It's just that the wind was super weird. Strong off the tops of the waves to knock you down, and no wind in between. Plus I was wearing my swimmig wetsuit that I realized is too tight in my arms, because I was having trouble gripping. I blew about four inside jibes and got worked for a while after each one of them. I was also missing my timing on jibing onto the outside wave Ugh. But I don't regret the session. I'm always glad to get into the waves.
