Working on my gybes
it was Cold windy day in February (5 deg) at Stithians, I decided to leave the Techno in the van and focus on “Speed and Gybes” I used a Tushingham T4-6.5m and a Naish Slalom board.
The wind was SW and started at 16kts Maxing out at 26kts, by mid afternoon I was on the edge but on the same sail size as most of the adults and coping really well, speed was good and I was keeping good speed through the lulls, my gybes improved through the day maintaining good exit speed and tighter turns.
Below are pictures of one of my gybes, I have a few more thing to work on especially sheeting in front arm straighter and the back hand back, but I’m pleased with my progress. (5 hrs on the water)
Bearing away nicely accelerating into the gybe
Good speed Think Feet
Sink low and put the power back on !
