Re: Production boats- justified bias?

Well, I will agree that a coastal passage or race would get the crew familiar with systems and coordinated roles. I interpreted your question to related to emergency procedures. You can and should train to heave to and deploy whatever sea anchor/drogue you use. Changing sails, etc, can all be done without actually being in the nastiest stuff.
