Went out yesterday wind barely blowing, but on the return hitting 20+ I did like most have said so far got far enough into the wind to let the bow get blown parallel with the slip and then short bursts of reverse to back her in. Its always tough particularly when the WHOLE marina pokes their heads like gophers seeing who screws up. Practice practice and dont be afraid of throwing a bumper on the pilings.
