You'd like to hope it'd be that simple but it's not unfortunately. Speaking only for myself while guessing bubble's in the same boat (pardon the pun), I like to feel that we've at least sailed well and that we aren't our our worst enemy, sunny weather or not. If it was only about being out, there'd be no point in all the effort it takes to prep a boat, get crew together, etc... and I'd just go for an after work cruise... Which we do on other days as well.

Check the SIs - some clubs don't like roll tacking. Get the tack itself right first before you add things like roll tacking.
All the more reason for the driver and everyone else to be forward and/or out of the cockpit. Bubble, on a trivia note, Brian Hutchinson who built the molds for the melges 24 and still coaches and makes go fast parts for them got his start on a P 30. Definitely a great old boat!
