Some Gybing Points

PWA Alacati Peter Volwater report

Here is a shot of Peter in mid gybe in a blisteringly fast heat in Alacati.  Note how he has stepped right forward to keep the board flat and under control and is now ready to flip the sail.  He has released his old back hand, is looking forward out of the gybe and his old front hand is right up against the mast preparing for the flip.  His knees are bent and bum down giving him stability and allowing him to maintain pressure on the inside rail with his heels to keep turning.
Micah on the extreme right and Antoine on the left are both flaring their sails and have stepped to keep control.  As you would expect, Peter smoked everyone in this heat.  Just look at the three sailors in the frame and identify the winner!
