Our Club didn't race on Friday so I just went out in nice breezes of 10 - 12 knots for a re-orientation session and went through the basics to make sure I hadn't completely forgotten things. I did have a couple of dry capsizes, but overall seemed to have the basics still under control, even doing some nice gybes. In the third gybe, the traveller block broke and I had to go back to install another one.
I was only out about an hour and a half, pacing myself and just trying to get a feel for things. I can't say there were any real epiphanies or eureka moments, but I did feel that that I paid more attention to how the boat felt as opposed to the simple mechanics of maneuvers. Still a very long way to go, but I was pleased that at least I was not totally absorbed in the basic mechanics. That is progress.
