you may find in larger winds in the low 20's that that BIG job alone is plenty. My boyz and I sailed back from a race south of my in 15-22 knots or there about with my new 155 carbon. Did just fine going up wind with just that sail alone up and the three of us. Racing, a reefed main would have been up and two more crew like I had earlier. For just a day sail, we had a good time in the upper 5's into the 6 knot speed range. 6.6 knots is hull speed for my rig.
That reminds me, I need to measure that C27 kevlar in my basement...........
We got sorta kinda fogged out of a race yesterday. Probably should have waited an hour, but it was so thick, not sure if it would lift, about 1pm we could have sailed vs the 12 pm start time. oh well, hindsight is ALWAYS better than forsight it seems.
