A couple of questions:

What type and length boat is that? Looks like a beauty!

I have been out a couple of times, in similar conditions, in my older 30'er, and found that mine doesn't seem to sail very well, with just a headsail. Last time, in 25-30kt winds, and 6-8' chop, I used a double reefed main, and furled small jib. The jib had terrible shape, though, as it's older, and has no foam luff, etc. With just the reefed jib, the baot wanted to go away from the wind, until I got the main up! I do have a smaller storm jib, which would probably have been better than a badly shaped, reefed jib.
I realize that 25-30kts would not really warrant the use of storm sails, but when your girlfriend is NOT comfortable, and the boat is heeling too much, I wonder if it would have sailed better that way?

Have you sailed in similar conditions with both sails up (and possibly reefed)? If so, how differently did the boat handle?
Northeaster,
Thanks for the compliments.
The boat is a Bending 36. (Otherwise known as a Beneteau 361)
LOA of 36'5"

I have sailed in similar conditions. I have gone with a partialy rolled head sail and a partialy rolled main sail. (I have furling main as well.)
I don't like the sail shape I get with the with the rolled up head sail. I also always forget to move the cars forward. Either way, I am happy just to be on the watter.

Northeaster is on a distinguished road
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.

On that day it was actually a "SPRAY DODGER."
On cold Fall and early Spring nights it is usually reffered to as the "WIND BREAKER."
