Re: i NEED HELP/Training weather?

Sounds like you're in Charleston! There is no racing this weekend (except at the CofC, and that's a college invitational), so you should probably not use the racing main and stick with the dacron working sails. You didn't mention how many crew or where you plan to go, but if you go offshore, I'd stick with those same sails and reef as others have mentioned. 15-20 frequently turns into "gusting to 25 or 30" when you get out there, so I'd definitely reef before going out.
