I learned this the hardway. When backing out in a strong crosswind the bow was blown down. I just stopped the boat, and let the boat settle down, and then proceeded to continue backing out of the fairway completely.
Practice makes perfect. I use to go out on S.F Bay during the summer, and for hours practicing gybing. The wind is usually minimum 25 knots in the summer afternoon. Sooner, or later there will be a time critical you will need to gybe with the wind blowing hard.....PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE....BEST WISHES in honing your skills
