thanks for that Blue water Bruce,makes a lot of sense.
I still think you get the both sails down and secured from within the cockpit,Get motor going and just fend off at about 10 degree off weather.
After the big blow hit, I got out of the cockpit to douse the fore sail thats then things got really crappy. with no one on the helm I was completely outa control, she ended up breach to the waves I boy did I get`a ride !
because of the sudden huge gust and heal I did what anybody would do,
ran back to the cockpit to uncleat the mainsheet, in shear terror !
Like you said BwB Down hauls are a savior when single handed..
