Paloma has weathered two Force 10 storms one for 36 hours the other for 48 hours(according to the Corpus Christi Coast Guard - winds 50-60 gusting above 60 and 28-30 foot seas) at sea and came out still afloat both times. Neither storm was anticipated at the time of departure and by the time we learned of them, we were too far from land - proving that you can't out guess the weather Gods - don't try - just be ready for whatever comes. Remember, every sail is an adventure.
