Good report... why didn't you have a bit of the headsail out? Do you have roller furling on your boat??? It would have at least helped balance the boat out a bit.
If the wind was against the current, the seas can get truly atrocious, even in what are relatively mild conditions. The ebb tide against the wind probably did just that... not fun at all.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
