I had the same thoughts as others here about how many of these boats seem to not had much storm prep done.
Upon further consideration, I imagine I'd prep by house and evacuate my kids and dog before I worried about my jib.
..but if you had an expensive boat parked right outside, hindsight would seem to recommend at least a few minutes removal of all sails and loose-fitting covers if you wish to find your boat approximately where you left it when you come home.
