What is your wind limit, as in, when do you decide that it's too windy to sail?
We've had 2 days of being chased off the lake on our Merit 25.
Both days were 25+ knots and white caps. Our problem is we can't seem to maintain control of the boat:
- Stalling when attempting to tack, then getting pushed back to the original tack
- Excessive healing resulting in the boom out too far and main lufting
- No response from the tiller.
Keep in mind we are a crew of 2, totaling just over 300 lbs together!
Should we just stick to our leisurely cruises up to 20 knots, or are we being too timid?
