T22 could probably handle 60 kts and punch thru smiling. It's a beast of a boat. If I had to choose a 22 footer to get tonked in, it would be the Tanzer. (When we wre investigating boats in that size range & were leaning toward the San Juan, I came across the T22's spec sheet. Said to girlfriend, "Holy schmoley ... this thing has an entire SJ21 for ballast!") Johann Tanzer and son took the T22 prototype out when it was blowing about 40 and tried everything they could think of to capsize or break it -- put its mast in the water, crash jibed it, flew the biggest sails they could... nothin. Damn thing enjoyed it. Keep up with maintenance, hone your skills, keep tight-fitting hatchboards in, and your boat will take excellent care of you.

Good on yer for making the trip. Adventure!
