Well, it was probably 15-20 with a few gusts to 22kn (mid Bay, according to my inst).
It was not really gusty. So, yes, that is the kind of minimal small craft advisory conditions that can make one cocky.
What will bring you back to earth is a good old stomping in a thunderstorm with a few 70kt gusts. Everyone needs to get smacked by a thunderstorm once, get completely beaten, to respect what nature has, whatever your boat.
But it sure was a super sailing day!
