A piece of advice:

When coming up to a dock, getting ready to load up onto a trailer, ALWAYS make sure you take the sail down very early!

We were about to reach the dock, when the wind started going approximately 7,000 MPH. We ricocheted off of the dock, and hit our boat trailer/vehicle. Nobody got hurt, but the driver was a little shaken up. The only damage to equipment was some chunks of wood knocked off of the trailer and a small dent in the dock. No damage to our boat, thankfully!
