I think my older "baggier" headsail causes me to roll it in sooner, as it pulls away / heels more, and then the rolling causes poor sail shape. I will have to get someone experienced to go with me next year, to see how bad my sails are, and give me sailing pointers!
I helped deliver a Ben First 36.7 accross the Gulf of Maine this year. We had sustained winds, on the nose, of 30 + kts, gusting to 40, for over 24hrs - seas to approx 15'. Unfortunately we motored, and only had the sails up a bit, as the wind was directly on the nose, and we were on a schedule.
Very nice boat! Wish we could have sailed it more.
Looks like you had a great day on the water. Take Care.
