I finally got the picture of Anna sailing in Holland and going fast down wind. Boom out. Ease the outhaul. Board up. Heel to weather and get sail up in the wind and neutralize steering. Sit forward. Dive into the low spots between the waves. Be broad reaching or sailing by the lee unless you have caught a surf on a wave and then just ride it. How do I know all this? Maybe I read it someplace.
Oh, yes, look behind you for where the best wind is and try to get into it.
Stay away from bunches of boats. They blanket each other and are all tied to the slowest.
Go for inside at the mark and on starboard if you have a choice.
Any other suggestions??
