Default RE: Quiver update: Retros vs Huckers for B&F

That's probably a good guess, but don't forget that you can continue to use the sail in higher winds than you would expect... just downhaul the sail more.

My afternoon session yesterday turned into a 9.8 day. I took my 9.8 V8 out on my F-Type 148 and played around in ~15+mph winds. I'm getting more comfortable going out in strong winds with this combination. The FT148 really shines for me on days like yesterday.

I haven't figured out the forecasts for this area yet. Yesterday we were supposed to get 10mph winds and we got 15. Today, we are supposed to see 14mph winds with gusts to 20-23mph... we'll see what we end up getting!
