David,
What kind of keel does that C27 have?
I was happily sitting at home watching the radar of that system moving in but my boat partner went out for a Sunday race up at Nyack around 1pm. They go caught out in some weather but no reports of getting blown over with bare poles and our usually trusty Atomic 4 pushing along. I suspect our Tartan 27' is a bit heavier and stiffer then the C27 at 7200 #s. Full keel design probably helped keep our boat flatter.
