Re: Pulling down head sail in strong winds?
Move as close to wind as you can, the sails should be still working, bu not enough to move the boat. Someone can release the halyard and move to the head of the boat to lower the genova. He will not be affected by the flapping sail. As he lowers the sail turn the boat 180 degrees to wind.
