I met someone in Norfolk, Va. a few years ago in an Edel 35 that had sailed to Bermuda with the WestMarine Bermuda Rally. They encountered very rough weather and successfuly deployed a sea-anchor. They're experience was detailed in "Drag Device Data Base" by Victor Shane. By the way, this is a great read.
From what I gathered from the owner, the boat was quite capable.
