Interesting question, indeed. For me there are a lot of variables - I won't go out if I have to slam closehauled into 30+ knots of air with large seas (things break,) but I will go out if it's off the nose in those conditions. SD makes an interesting point, though, there are crew who will go out and enjoy a bash and there are crew who aren't comfortable if it's cold, rainswept or blowing like stink. I guess my answer would depend on where I was, where I was headed and who was around for crew. Having said all of that, I'd prefer leaving the 40+ knots of wind to those occasions when I'm in the middle of a passage and have no choice in the matter!
