Don’t capsize.. I think this will be the primary action I will take here... I looked into this partly because I often take the AI out by myself and will just do what I’ve always been doing - when it gets real windy, use less sail, pedal more. Still plenty fast and I think the pedaling adds some control.
I forgot to mention that with the float and the ama collapsed, the AI was easy to upright by standing on the collapsed ama and pulling the boat over.
I also can see that if you do pitch pole an AI, its going to turtle quickly. From this thread, it sounds like your best option would be to collapse one ama, make sure the sail is tied to the boat and disconnect it (seems that if you remained calm, you could do this without a mask even with the boat turtled). With one ama collapsed and the mast disconnected, I think you probably could right the boat, get the ama back out and at least get the mast back on the boat so that you could pedal to shore. You may need to collapse both ama's to upright it and having some sort of rope that you can pull the upwind ama might help to leverage your weight.
And... I have had the AI for now a bunch of years and have taken it out in some wild conditions and really haven’t come that close to flipping it anyhow. I’m probably worrying about it too much now..
After I did the capsize test, had a nice sail, here a couple pictures..
This one is of an island on the lake where a lot of birds are born every year. The young Seagulls seem like "teenagers" now.
We are heading into monsoon season and when you see storms like this, time to get back to shore in a hurry.. these pop up fast..
