safety first.

Yeah, piling on, but drop all the sails since you have no idea what sort of a squall you are hitting, power up, and adjust as seen fit: if you are head to wind try a bit of headsail to stiffen the boat, if you are running, same holds true, a bit of headsail to take the roll out of her. Squalls are dramatic but end. Go sailing afterwards but not during.
