First big-breeze 505 regatta- North Americans in Santa Cruz CA. First time in the boat in 25kt+ gusts. In a beater boat. That's either Howard Hamlin or Mike Martin, in first, lapping us. Subsequently learned my tiller was ~a foot longer than what the west coast guys sail with, which meant I couldn't cross the boat properly in a breeze-on gybe. Hacksaw treatment of said tiller magically solved the gybing problem.
