wind conditions and reefing
I was going to go sailing today.
I am in Manhattan.
There is a small craft advisory.
It indicates 15-20 kt winds with gusts up to 30 kt.
On my boat you are supposed to put a reef in at 20 kts.
So do I reef the sail or not?
what happens if I am not reefed and I hit a 30kt gust? Can I just head out of the wind a little and stay level? Or is that too dangerous?
