When I had my H23 We were hit with a gust.. took us to starboard. sails out and boom dipping.. Wind kept us down but the boat just slowly moved into the shallows of the river. Nothing I did mattered Other then when in "doubt, let out" the boat basically saved herself! All in about maybe 2-5 minutes. I've never feared heeling since!

chrondi is an unknown quantity at this point
I would not suggest to force by all means a fixed keel 20+footer to capsize. Such boats do capsize but this is rather the result of a combination of wind and waves, i.e. a potentially dangerous situation if no other boat is nearby ready to help. The tendency of the boat to turn to windward is her designed natural defence and filling the cockpit and cabin with water doesn't cover any meaningful learning need. These skills are rather acquired by means of dinghy sailing, not with heavier boats!
