Oh! You're going to rock!

Here is a snippet from one day during our trip south in that same area back in Sept. In our case it was a beat down from the Wicomico, and broad reach up to Urbanna. Same kind of wind speeds and they built as we approached Windmill point until we were severely overpowered and fighting to keep from rounding up (full main, reefed jib). Once we were able to make the turn it was all good though. Also it is amazing how the camera flattens things out. You can see from the pitching of the boat there were some good sized waves this day.

Gotta love the classic plastic!
I totally get you. When I've got the right sails flying for the conditions, I have total confidence in my P30.
