J, You are correct. I'm bogging down. Probably not enough tilting on my part towards the wind. This helps a lot also. I'm not sure I'm trying to overpower it because after sesh one that was very clear. You have to sort of go with it. I'm mainly boggling down hence try a little more downwind to get s...
