jas, dude, that DOES sound like a Whoa Nelly!"
Sounds like you handled it well though - especially single-handed. Though I don't know enough to help you out much, I will say that I've been amazed how much better my C27 sails with a reef in once we hit 20. I can get a lot of weather helm too on my boat - but she really chills out with that reef.
Go try it again and keep tweakin'!
