I took my first sailing lesson last June and had a great time on my newly aquired sunfish last summer. As I was learning, I tried to stay away from the excessively windy days, i.e. 15mph+. I actually posted one experience I had on a very windy day where I failed to get out of the dock. This year I am itching to tackle windy days. I'm in Kansas. If I wait for the wind to die down, it will be mid June before I can get out again. I am talking about winds of at least 15, more like 20mph. My question is, what are the safety issues out there? Part of me says the worst thing that can happen is capsize. But I suppose there are issues such as flying booms or running into rocks, etc. that a newby might be more subject to. I just think it would be a blast to sail a run or a beat in 20mph. Or am I looking for nothing but trouble until I have sailed another season or so? Will take any advice.
