gregpecaut is on a distinguished road
Start with taking her out in all kinds of weather. If a 40k wind seems like it's too much for you in your boat, stick to coastal cruising. If you have everything under controll and feel you and the boat can handle more, go for it. Tiller time is important. Learn as much about weather and boat handling as you can. Knowing your boat and it's equipment is more important than what boat you use. Like the other fellow said, it's the captain that makes the boat.
