Same thing happened to me on my Ranger 23 about four months ago, and I had someone else on the boat with me that knew nothing about sailing. So it was an eye opener for me because I wasn't used to that type of heel. So I only fly a jib when the wind is above 15kts, until I can get comfortable with that type of heel. I hear people talking about riding the rail in the water, that's pretty scary but I see why people like it...ADRENALINE RUSH. That's what keeps me going back out time after time.


Lake Pontchartrain and beyond (hopefully)
