I sailed across the Aegean in Greece
in a SO 32 during the Meltemi Winds. Sustained daily winds of 40 knots with 14-18 ft sea state. Got knocked down in the channel between Tinos and Mikonos and had the jib
taking wave water
. The boat was stellar!! Never even heard a creek or crick. In fact when we were heading north we were really taking a pounding due to the fetch. The boat was very strong. It was just my wife and I on the boat. Good luck.
