1. Forgot to attach the jib sheets to the storm sail in 45 knts of wind, not pretty.

2. Cranking up the jib halyard from the mast in strong winds with the main already raised, usual procedure, but not paying attention to the fact that we were on a starboard tact which brought the main to the same side as the winch, and yes, ripped a 3" slice in the main with the winch handle...arhhhh.

Just to name a few
