Just don't be stupid about it.

Drop the pick pull it in and then go to shore and have a life.

If the wind is blowing 25 knots or more when you first arrive then inspect your brain and it will tell you to stay on the boat for that night. The next night in the same wind you are fine to go ashore.

Just because you (and lots of people) read all sorts of horror stories on the internet don't start to believe them! 99.999999999999% of 'watch out this will happen to YOU' will NOT happen to you.

Go have fun and don't worry
