Only 2 runs

First was overpowered but had a little control left...made a jumps on an incoming wave which broke just before me...Jibe didn't succeed ...way back was just straight to the beach..

Wind increased more when I tried to walk into the water I could barely hold my sail and board with me, it just wanted to fly :)

Second run out was a bit more overpowered then the first run, so no jumping...at the back the wind increased more and more...no jibe...waterstart took me 4 attempts and I was having trouble not letting go of my sail...finally I managed to get on again and sailed straight to the beach to where I started...

Called it a day, this is no fun at all...eh..OK a little because I can say I did try it :)
