|Learning the basics ….|
Come morning, Frank, Jaja and I took our first lessons in windsurfing from the resort’s lady instructor. It was a breezy morning but learning to windsurf wasn’t a breeze at all. In winds stronger than about 8 knots and also depending on the size of sail used, the rig is actually pulled to windward over the sailor. The force of the wind pushed the rig upwards towards a vertical position, increasing the sail area presented to the wind which, in turn, increased the wind force on the sail.
