preping for heavy weather

Hey all,

Sorry for the onslaught of questions reciently.

Next up: I''ve spent some time making sure my 50% goes on fine, and I''ve reefed my main, and hove too in the strongest winds I''ve been out in (a whopping 15 knot breeze) My mind must be blanking, because I cant think of anything else I can do to make sure I know how to handle her in heavy weather. I know experience is the best teacher, but taking her out when I know the weather sucks just sounds completley idiotic to me. What do I do to get myself and my boat ready for heavy weather when I eventualy hit it.

Thanks agian to all of you for the help.
