Seriously, sailing down wind and the accidental jibe is one of the worse things that can happen as far as I am concerned.
Ever try recovering from an accidental jibe when solo-sailing wing 'n wing - while using a whisker pole?
Happened a couple weeks ago with me - the pole and 150 genoa ended up submerged with starboard rail in the water in a 26 kt gust - with me clammering around trying to straighten the boat out. It happend so fast, I felt like a pendulum hammer. I refuse to pole out while solo anymore.
