in waves. More than 90% of the time I sail in relatively flat water and can keep up with the mid-fleet gang. But when I travel to a 'bigger' event and there happen to be waves (1 ft and up) I struggle and end up near the bottom. You will say 'spend more time practicing', but my local waters don't 'do' waves. How can I get experience getting a bit faster in bigger waves without traveling far from my home waters?
