Learning through failing

Took Abilyn out solo today in 12-22 knots.  Had 3 epic wipeouts with the A5, one of which had me on my side for a good minute.

Through various failures on the water today, I learned so much about myself and the boat. I experienced some nasty roundups and never once panicked.  And now, I can check solo round-up in 20 knots off my list of experiences. 

I can't wait to write more about it. But I have some sails to roll and then some free Ben & Jerry's to scarf.
