Reading your notes about sailing under main alone made me wonder why you didn't swap to a small jib and reef the main before you left the dock. My IOR boat would sail under main alone but it wasn't very effective - they really like some jib up.

Looked like a great day nevertheless - 25 knots is perfect sailing AFAIAC. If you have a narrow shouldered, heavy chute you can experience a whole new form of living in wind like that.

P.S. I bet you understand why people have dodgers now don't you.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Video of the BIG WIND Sail!

Awesome!! I would say those swells look more on the order of 40-45 footers!

Looked like fun...great video. Swells looked 8-10. 20 ft swells are pretty huge. Good luck sailing her. Sailboats were made to sail in good winds.

Eh,
We had those conditions inside the marina yesterday.
No kidding. Glad I was tied to the dock!
