Sure windy but certainly nothing like a 10 !
Saw 50 knot gusts last week on med.(Pretty steady 45 knot gusting to 52 according to local Capitainarrie(sp?) Couldnt see the sea ! Looked like snow !!! Nobody but nobody sailing; attempting to sail or even rigging.Was warm too.Left my kit alone !!!
You could have sailed with just the mast !!!
Not sure any of us can really sail in 45knot +
