All of the above posts pretty much cover it. Having been out on a V-21 in 25 knots, I can relate to how wild your ride was. If you'd had the jib and doused the main, there would not have been any weather helm but the issue with the inlet would've been the same and you would've suddenly found the meaning of lee helm when ya tried to come up. Get the new working jib and run sail controls to the cockpit. The housetop or side deck of a C-22 is NO place to be in a Gale.
