Took the brand new AI out today from the beach. I'm guessing the winds were about 15mph blowing onshore. The waves on the beach were easily managable but a storm front started coming in view soon after I got through the waves. It was somewhere between choppy and close wave sets.... and it didn't get better farther offshore. Once I figured out the boat and got under sail, it cruised quite nicely. I did very little pedaling once the sails kicked in. I don't have a GPS yet so I can't report on that yet.
The one thing that detracted from the enjoyment was going parallel to the wave sets. With a wide trimaran going parallel to the waves, there was a lot of twisting motion in my hips in reaction to the wavy gravy, kinda like riding a mechanical bull set on low. With the narrower sidekicks I don't remember that much see-saw action in the wave sets. Of course with the 59SF sail you've got to have a wide stance of the amas. SO, yes it was quite fun but I will take it on the bay side of the island where the ocean waves won't affect me much on my next outing. That should be more relaxing fun.
BTW the Trax Cart with the balloon tires is a lot better to drag a heavy yak through the soft beach sand with than the heavy duty Hobie wheels.
