Re: wind conditions and reefing
I think the problems come when say the wind varies from say 10 knots to say 35. I would reef for say a 30 knot wind and be able to handle the 35. But at 10 knot, I'm going to be going slow, and if I got a big sea, getting knocked around a lot with no power. It is a predicament.
Seriously? When is the last forecast you saw that was 10 kts, gusting to 35? The OP asked a question about being in 15-20 and being hit with a 30 kt gust without a reef. To your point...I wouldn't reef a sunfish in 10 kts even if you could reef a sunfish. Come on.
