Breaking the ice

Boston Harbour Pleasure Bay

Went out after work. Swung by home to pick up a 5.0 and 4.5 as the sensor read 27-33 as I was leaving.

Ended up using the 5.0 for a good hour; planing half the time.

Never really got in the groove during the session; probably due to the tough up and down conditions and the poor rigging of the 5.0 (too much downhaul?). It was great and stable in the gusts but gutless in the lulls.

Tried a few vulcans but the first was the best and it wasn't even close (90o rotation). Good to get wet and tired.
