Can't say it any better than Lee has.

Would add that you should check out our page under the Member's Websites for the real story of Satori in the Perfect Storm. I think we have a link to the CG video of Satori and you can see that she's heaved-to under storm staysail alone (not running downwind), with the main securely lashed, and the helm lashed to leeward (some people say, not all the way to leeward, so, you need to practice this in various wind conditions). She looks pretty comfortable to me, in a pretty big storm.

Also, if you haven't already read it, Heavy Weather Sailing should be required reading for any offshore sailor.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
