Oh, and of course when I've got way too much sail up for the wind conditions.

Too much sail up hum ...I don’t resist to tell you a story with that guy that I know that sails a Benetau 26.

He was solo sailing in a beautiful day, on passage, flying a spinnaker with not too much wind. The sun was so good that he undressed and went naked for a tan with the exception of a small towel around his head, to protect from the sun (he is bald).

The wind pick up and we has happy having fun…and then the wind got really strong and he was going surfing at more than 10K and the auto pilot could not cope anymore. Not a problem he thought he was having even more fun….well to cut it short, the wind only died late in the night and he remained naked, only with a short towel, half frozen at the tiller till the conditions permit him to lower safely the spinnaker…and of course without damaging it.

Regards

Paulo

Pete,

I can't Pm because I don't have enough posts unfortunately. Is yours the lifting keel version and did you bother getting beaching legs for it? Also have you got any documentation on it like the original owners manual?
