When I had my H23 We were hit with a gust.. took us to starboard. sails out and boom dipping.. Wind kept us down but the boat just slowly moved into the shallows of the river. Nothing I did mattered Other then when in "doubt, let out" the boat basically saved herself! All in about maybe 2-5 minutes. I've never feared heeling since!
