short board heli-tacks
Today was my best day by far. Sailed away dry on maybe 15-20 helicopter tacks. 5.8 on my 109 ltr RRD. The wind was generally holey, NW mid to upper teens. I had my fair share of planing. Sailed from 10.30 till about 1.30. Good practice, and good workout for the calluses.
The "pool" is a great place to work on transitions.
Tomorrow is looking like we'll get some fairly strong northeast winds. Low tide is around 10am so things seem to be lining up for some wave sailing. I'm going to shoot for a keybox session tomorrow morning. I'll be using the go-pro, so check back for the video.
