By using that system can you bring the boat back by yourself even in a heavy winds ? Arnis
Progressively heavier winds make it progressively easier to right any cat (to a point). Pointing the bows/mast into the wind at a 45 degree angle and the wind helps to right the boat.
By yourself? On a 20? A whole different story.
First off, you wouldn't catch me on the 20 by myself...ever. The boat starts flying a hull upwind in 10mph breeze. If it's blowing hard getting a bigger boat turned around in to the wind is progressively more difficult (14, 16, 18, 20). We have a handful with one swimming the mast and one standing forward on the hull to help rotate the boat around. The boat weighs 400 lbs., unless you weigh over 250 don't count on righting it alone.
