Is this too much heel?

I reckon so

Kinda got knocked by a bit of a gust, a couple of seconds before this we were upright, and a couple of seconds after we were upright again.

Re: Is this too much heel?

Most likely! No backstay adjuster, no tension gauge and no idea just how old the sails are.

It was a pretty decent gust, was blowing at 15knots, we had the first reef in and all was good, and then was suddenly blowing a lot more and we were on our side. I would guestimate the gust must have been a good 10knots extra to have knocked us that quick, so there's at least 20 knots (and probably closer to 25) in that shot.

I don't see the stantions or sail.....

In the water. Also, person in cockpit isn't scrambling, so it doesn't look too bad to me...... smile

Re: Is this too much heel?

The stanchions were well in the water, they're hidden by the sail and I don't think it could get any further over without the assistance of a spin, but yeah, it was nothing crazy. Popped right back up as usual.
