Do you ever get tired of bragging about yourself? Just wondering. Your sailing is boring and mediocre at best.

Planing out of clew-first jibes is quite hard, since planing clew-first will make you loose speed, unless you have pro-level skills.

Good videos. Your entry has sufficient speed. Your clew first sailing starts out good but then you start losing speed. Moving both hands back farther and bearing off a little more will help. You lose ...

" it is much more difficult to learn oversheeting+inclining rig/body+bringing body forward+bending knees. Thats all.

The downside of just doing what is fun and not pushing yourself to advance and learn new skills is that eventually you will get bored mowing the lawn and take up kiting. And then you will be one of th ...
