I had my first impressions on last saturday on our small lake with turning winds, 1-3 beaufort. perhaps 4 during my second capsize. so fast and smooth I never sailed upwind with so little effort. but capsizing definitely took the power out of me: I am light (72kg) and had problems to righten it when the mast had drowned a bit. so put a dry suit on and a man to watch you from the land unless you are a skill equilibrist.
I left the gennaker at home this first time...and didn't miss it.
but it felt great and today I can't wait for the next weekend!!!!!
