The weather I heard talked about gusts to 60 (mph, not knots) so wrapping the spinnaker or other jib halyards in opposing directions (clockwise & counterclockwise) around the r/f jib and tying them off would probably be a good idea. Wrapping the mainsail & cover with lines or sailties would be a good idea too, if you can't get the sail off. Snowing now. Half an inch on the ground in CT.
