just got back from Frisco on Saturday, just on time to miss most of
would have liked to stay longer, but accommodations were up on Saturday
I arrived the previous Saturday morning, and promptly rigged and sailed that
day for a couple hrs.
was able to sail again Sunday and Monday as well.
(all sound side) was able to rig a 5.5 for the first time in my life and
not use it as a beginners sail. :)
Tuesday was a dud, Wednesday gave a great late afternoon session, Thursday
morning was nice, but died quickly,
Friday morning was great, and then died around early afternoon.
personal trip highlights,
my first successful jibe :)
walking thru the setting up of windfest Thursday afternoon, and checking out
the new rides.
scoring a great deal on a used carbon boom 1 short day after destroying an
aluminum boom that I wished I had an excuse to replace.
setting my own personal gps speed record on my f155 with a 6.5 sail at 30.6
cutting my foot on something out in the sound, and leaving a pool of ***
on the boardwalk to the launch.
waiting for the wind on Thursday morning then rigging too small and getting
skunked on 3 separate trips back to re rig.
things I learned
Sailing with other people is that much more fun than sailing solo as I am
normally forced to do here in TN.
those guys at windfest know their sh^t I just watched for 30 min as they
explained rigging ect, and learned something every time (for example - too
much outhaul makes a sail unstable)
