Coming up into New Bedford Harbor the other day, I got hit by a gust that was about 30 knots according to the wind instruments... we were set for 15-20 knots of wind and had the full main and most of the 150% genny up. Ended up flying an ama two feet off the water for about 5-10 seconds... We had been doing 10 knots before the gust hit.. no idea how fast we got the boat moving during that gust as I was a bit busy with the helm and sheets.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
