The Centerboards were down...
Generally, one only uses a single, leeward, centerboard on a Cat so fitted and particularly a Gemini (having sailed one). With both down you're dragging a lot of extra surface area through the sea and you may have no idea what condition the boards are in.


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
