I'd say your priority is not to go pee, but to reduce sail or change course: Your heeling too much .

Beyond that, I can't see it being a problem at 25 degrees. Perhaps by 35-40, but speaking as a man, there is no problem directing urine to the funnel area. Perhaps women might find it more challenging -- not sure.

But seriously... unless you're long-distance racing, or perhaps hung up on a drying reef, no sailboat should be heeling that much for long periods. If you are, then going pee is likely the least of your problems .

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

The one time I was in this situation was with my Groco K. We were racing and beating into 6-8 foot waves on a 5 second period. No way you could use it without spiling everywhere.
