Re: handling gusts

On my smaller venture 22 I would ease off the wind a bit as the gust would bring me back up. However on larger 30, 36 and 40 foot boats I just keep course and spill some wind from the main if I need to. I am sure different people handle it differently.

I would rather admit I'm a fool with the possibility of finding I am not, than to deny it showing all that I truly am.
