Why would you be sailing for long periods at 40 degrees? Think it's probably time to reduce sail. You might actually move forward as opposed to sideways
Generally, I think anything much over 20 degrees is excessive. Hard on the boat, sailors and counter productive. Anyway, I certainly didn't have the intake out of the water
well, its not often we get such a breeze here so we kinda enjoy it. we hardly even reef our sails here too. just let it out if wind gets too strong. anything more 25kts is probably couple times per year only.
