On Labor Day (2017--09-04) the air temperature finally exceeded 80F, after unseasonably cold temperatures in the east and record high temperatures in the west (106F in San Francisco!). It was a brilliant, breezy day to boot. Being a big holiday, there was a lot of power boat traffic, sometimes causing what some call "voodoo chop". On this planing run I was interested to see what would happen as I hit that speedboat's wake at high speed. (It turned out not to be such a big deal.) I wasn't sailing very well: I lost ALL my speed in the jibe, but at least I didn't fall off the board.
