When you say 'stand the chop' maybe I was not clear. It is not just a case of pounding it is the lack of progress under sail. There will be days when you are fairly close to the wind if not hard on the wind and will be doing well to make 3 knots. Your leeway will be considerable.

If you are prepared to motor sail then things will not be so bad.

However like you say the Gemini will do well at anchor.
