Most boatyards and insurance companies require you to remove all sails (main from the boom and Jibs from the headstay) from the boat when they are stored out of the water with the concern being that the boat will blow over. 60-65 knots of wind is an enormous amount of wind as the load increases expedentially with speed, and the loads on a boat out of the water are greater than when in the water since they boat can't disperse the energy by accellerating or heeling.
