It always amazes me how often you sail in really light conditions, but you manage to foil at least once in the day, and it all seems worth it. What was satisfying was that I was about to be overtaken by a Laser sailor who shouted over 'Not so fast today are you!', just as I got a little puff and popped up onto the foils and off into the distance before I thought of a smart reply.
Zero wind tricks soon became the order of the day:
- Stern sinking - how far can you go without doing the full spin over backwards. - (The going over the front option was attempted but aborted early on!)
- The transom sink spin whilst capsized - but climbing over the board to stay dry during the operation.
- Bow sink spin whilst capsized - again going over the board and staying dry.
