Some boats can sail off in a hurry if you right them and the main sheet is cleated or caught up. Then you get to see how fast the boat is with less weight and how far you can swim. Enjoy, lou
Windsurfing is great but it helps to be in pretty good shape to carry it off.

Capsized a rented Prindle 18' beach cat in St. Thomas a bunch of years ago. Watching the cat take off while still in the water once righted taught me this lesson. A long swim to reach it again.
