Forecast was wrong

Much windier than forecast, waves, white horses and big gusts. Mini monster series, 2 back to back times two. Between four and five for the racers.  I came third which based on the conditions and calibre of the competition I was pleased. Definitely the toughest sailing I have done for a while. Kept upright for all the races but did fall over while distracted after a race. Mast sealing worked well but did invert and lost the burgee. Difficult to get back on board, consider Scamp style righting line. Used the old sail, rubbish but little better with more out haul and more down haul.
