Re: What's Safe Sailing Wind Speeds for 26ft Full Keel Boat
The Etap 30 is not that light. I suspect your measurement of wind speed was in error. With the main pulled in tight and a genoa (jib) up you might be heeled over quite a bit in 15 knots, but not really out of control. It might FEEL that way though perhaps. Do you have the shoal draft version? That will likely be more tender.
