Until this is answered with clarity on the type of storm sail and equip onboard, I'm not buying the legitimacy of this question either.

Come on guys, its a troll. They can't be serious. If the are that lacking in brain power they are likely not savvy enough to even get to the boat safely, let alone leave a slip.
Seriously.

I hope all of our East Coasters are weathering the storm ok. My thoughts are with you guys. Storm of the century or not, its nerve wracking to be watching sat images of a storm approaching your baby and after all the prep you've done, all you can do is cross your fingers and hope.

"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Page semi-protected
"Do not feed the trolls" and its abbreviation "DNFTT" redirect here. For the Wikimedia essay, see "What is a troll?".
The "trollface" sometimes used to indicate trolling.[1]

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted". While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions outside of an online context. For example, mass media uses troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."[5][6]"

Are you also going to be working on your single handed skills or take a crew down with you?

I guess I don't agree with most of you guys. This Sunday afternoon would have been a good time to go out in something more than the light air typically found on the bay. 20 knots, gusting to 30 would allow you to test the number 3 with 2 reefs in the main. We sail year round and look for these conditions in fall, winter & spring. Our S&S 37 loves this kind of weather. See for yourself. Varsity Sailing - YouTube

My understanding is that the OP wanted to go out and sail in Irene since it's only a cat. 1 hurricane... that's only 85mph... I wouldn't think most boats really love that much at all.

I agree with Puddin and another item worthy of consideration. Conditions in and around hurricanes tend to be unpredictable. You also get the fun of being in a huge storm, not a smaller squall that will make things rough for a bit, then settle down. You could be in rough conditions for hours and hours...
