My most recent San Juan experience was tacking south in Bellingham Channel with 110% jib and one reef in the main with ~20-25 knots of wind, and then getting into Rosario Strait, then Strait of juan de Fuca and shaking out the reef and hoisting the 150% genny with a nice gentle 8-10 knots for the crossing to Pt Townsend.
So you just never know for sure what it's gonna do, but from what I've experienced, it's good to be prepared for 25 knots before leave protected waters in these parts.
