Sounds great PC..My first keelboat boat was a 77 Islander 28. She was a blast to sail with a turn of speed. 15 degrees is almost a perfect heel for the amount of wind. As you begin to learn that she has far greater toleranace than that, although it may not be the most comfortable way to sail you will trust her heel in steady winds more. Where it becomes an issue is on the gusty days.

Enjoy learning you boat and how safe she is and what she can take. The Islanders well well designed boats of their day and still have the classic lines of the cruiser/ racers of that era.

Have fun..

Dave

Congratulations on a great sail. As others have said, you'll get used to it. Eventually, you'll do it on purpose to get an "extreme heeling" picture to post online.

Regards,
Brad

You will get to love 15 degrees. Not the temperature.
