The first of these two planing runs was pretty fast: 24.3 mph. (But it feels like 65!)
The water was still cold, and there wasn't really that much wind, but I did get this one fast planing run, reaching 21.0 mph.
It was windy enough to rig a slightly smaller sail (7.0 instead of 8.1 square meters). There was still too much power, but I hung on tight. Still, I fell in the water soon enough and discovered it was still too cold for this shorty wetsuit. Starting at 01:05 in the video, I sailed back across the lake without hooking in, and sheeted out, just to avoid any chance of crashing in the frigid water.
