There's one exception to that, Marty - when it's blowing like stink (let's say +30kts for argument's sake) AND cold AND raining, and all at the same time..

In THAT case, it's better to spend the day in the Clubhouse, in front of a log fire, drink in hand, talking with your crew about your last race (or cruise) as you watch the rain come down on the poor souls outside...
