Hello, today I took my 14 turbo out in 15 to 20mph winds and I was doing great but when I turned to tack, I let out the jib and had the mainsheets all the way out. As I turned into the wind,I instantly flipped over backwards into the cold water. I didn't panic (this was my first time to flip over) and righted it ok. When I started off again, I noticed a sheet line caught on the lowest sail batton. When I reached over to grab it, I instantly blew over backwards again. This time, the mast stuck about 2 feet into the lake bottom. A small boat came over and helped me pull it over. When I tried to start off again, I noticed I only had one rudder. The pin had fallen out of the other one. I just let it push me onto the shore and rocks, and pulled it back to the trailer on foot. Lots of scratches and a missing rudder pin is lucky for what I went through today.
I noticed that I could only sail on a beam reach and could not tack at all. Was the wind too strong or was I just in the wrong place on the boat when I tried to tack? Any suggestions would help a lot. Thanks.
