Re: Big Wind!!!
Got it now. Seems to have deteriorated from the OP. Launching into heavy winds is different from launching into a storm, even with the same winds. In a storm, visibility will reduce, seas often get more confused as winds shift, stress is much higher as you get soaked. Not the way to first take on heavy weather. Glad to hear you are postponing. You'll get there. Very cool goal.
Keep in mind that the impact of wind is exponential. The difference going from 25 to 30 is very notably more than 20 to 25 and so on. There is math on this, but I don't have it handy. Also, if slugging into it, you will create even more apparent wind.
