Hope your summer is going well.
I've gotten a serenity and have been out on it a few times with an 8.5 retro.
What a great board!
I'm looking for some jibing tips to help get the girl around in timely fashion and without ending up in the drink.
I can tack it successfully but boy is it a challenge to jibe in any amount of wind.
I went into an impropmtu race on the weekend against small sailboats and beat most of them. Small lake, gusty winds 0-12knots. If I could have stayed dry on the downwind jibes and sailed her straight downwind I would have won for sure.
Any tips appreciated!
