Rockter will become famous soon enough
I certainly would not go out to practice it. Somehow that seems a contradiction to me. What if we get shipwrecked practicing?
At the week-end we had a force 9... about 45 kt.
I stayed in port and listened to it howl.
I guess you could practice by going out a bit over canvassed in lighter airs.
