Adrenaline

My GPS clocked rides of 10.5 knots!

Tahiti to Moorea crossing, Society Islands

 

Predictability

Forecast: 20kts, 3meter seas. Day started calm, but the wind came fast and hard when it did, late for it's appointment with my sail.

Pace

We stayed together for a while after meeting up, averaging just under 7 knots.

Finesse

Let's hear it for the stern draw! So handy when you don't want to put the blade in on the downwind side or slow down.
