Combat Sailing

Blustery winds this afternoon - 17-20 kts.

Still sailed in the regatta - Laser Pico was my weapon of choice.

The first one I took out was rigged with a jib. After warming up and dunking after every tack, I took that one in and swapped it out for a jibless one. Control vice speed.

I held my own - first Pico over the line, and 3rd out of seven boats.

I did pay a price - I left some shin skin somewhere out there. Last time I sailed a Pico I did the same thing - the ridge amidship of the small boat and my right shin don't mix well...

I am thoroughly beat now (and blissful for it)!
