Had many of the same experiences in the bay. Once was in a cell when the motor quit, we had no sails up so our only option was to turn and run with it. We hit 8.9 knots on a bare pole

Lets not forget the Heave to option!! That way you can get some coffee and watch the storm pass. Practice is everything, and we do it often.
