Flying a spinnaker on my 21' Victory "Reba's Liberty". I think it was a day after a hurricane or something because there were still strong winds/maybe gusts about on the South River in Annapolis.
Needless to say, we got heeled wayyy over and started taking water into the not-self-bailing cockpit (into the boat). I quickly released everything that was spinnaker-related, which worked. Afterward, we had a spinnaker streaming from the top of the mast like a flag on a long line. Got that down by throwing a line over it and hauling it down.
