Glad to hear you're hooked, just like the rest of us! Me and a buddy just took my 2002 Tiger out for my second day and his first (he's a big boat mono guy) in Newport harbor on Saturday. The boat is awesome, I just moved up from a 16 too, which I'm still gonna race solo ( I add weight) but the Tiger and F18 are the next level in my sailing addiction. It was blowing 16+ steady and 22+ gusts and it was actually not super scary like I thought big air could be. The hulls do a nice job of punching through chop and wakes, way better than the 16 ever could! It probably didn't hurt that we are both 200+ lb guys. Anyway, glad to hear you had fun and welcome to the club!!
I love these calm moments before the storm, it reminds me of Beethoven...
