Does anyone have advice on how to climb onto a high centerboard. I have a Fusion 15 dingy. Had to be "rescued" the other day as I was unable to climb on the high centerboard. It capsized during a sudden gust and it did a 180 on my first right attempt, leaving me in the water. It rides almost three feet out of the water. Very frustrating. Any thoughts other than hit the gym?

Thanks guys! Yes the problem is getting on the board if the first attempt is a failure or if I get low sided and end up swimming. It is very bouyant and the centerboard is at my finger tips. I tried six times to get up. All I got was a bruised ego and biceps. I am thinking of carrying a small rope ladder to sling around the board and then remove it once I am up. Otherwise it would be concerning to sale alone which is usually the case.
