Re: Skilled helmsman steering downwind in 30-40 knots...

After reading all these stories I am so glad I bought a full keel canoe stern sailboat. When we have been in over 30 knots our boat loves it. The autopilot barely has to do anything, she just surfs down every wave on course, none of the fighting of the helm. Into the wind is a different story....

Life's a dream, live it!
