The next day there was lots of wind, but I didn't make any jibes without falling. In this one jibe attempt, my footwork was way worse than usual.
This day I got just one planing run, which ended ignominiously.
The day's forecast called for much lighter winds than this! And given that it was blowing right up the valley, there were big (for here) rolling swells, even in the lulls. I was over-powered on my 8.1, so I went back home and got my 7.0. Made one jibe dry, shown here. (It looks fast [which is partly why it's fun], but my top speed here was just 17.1 mph.)
Yesterday the wind was light but surprisingly steady, coming from the south, directly down from Bald Eagle Ridge. I sailed much further west than usual, going all the way to where the old railroad bed emerges from the lake. Afterwards, getting back to the beach took a lot of tacking.
