Well that was fun
Went for a sail today, forecast 15-20knots, nice blue sky. Still had a couple of reefs in from the other day so left them there to see how it was out on the water. Turns out that was a fine idea
Checked after we got back in, sustained 23knots gusting to 30, I think we could have checked the keel joint on several occasions without getting wet. I think I need to get my smallest jib converted to hanks as we were a touch overpowered with the 115% flying. Certainly the highest winds I've had her out in, all kept nicely under control (I thought), let her round up a few times when all letting the main out did was to dunk the end of the boom in the water
Not a BFS for you salty dogs, but was for me.
