|Trev (2070km): |
Wello Point. 144 starb C. 9m gaastra GTX old, 52cm drake. Saw Peter go out with small sail and planned a bit; so rigged a 9m instead of 10m. Not easy with 9m - as harness lines on boom not in right position; given used boom at lowest setting with 7.7m (other day when broke other boom); and struggled to get them in right position while Trying to plane.
The lesson from the session: I planned a few times and had a max speed of 16.8 - which meant I planned about 8 times going about 15 knots. I dont sail fast - only PB max of 28knots - but sailing on the plane at 15knots is a strange strange feeling. It is so so slow; but yet planning. Yes, it felt really slow - like the whole rig was going to just fall back on me. But fun to be out!
