I sail an Omega 14. Here is the back ground. Out on my river stomping grounds sailing solo. Winds were around 12 knots having a great time. I was on a starboard tack beating windward when a large gust capsized me. First time I had to right the boat. Glad I read that chapter! Well long story short the winds were still blowing strong at this time, and I had my cell phone with me. I was luckily able to save it with the first tip but didn't want to chance going over again so I decided to try sailing with the Main alone. However I could not head up more than 90% to windward. So I decided to lower the main and try the jib, but same thing couldn't go windward. My sailing experience is limited and was wondering if this is typical of most boats to loose that ability with out both sails or just a characteristic of this craft?
