As a future owner of a Romilly I would like learn something about Romilly’s behaviour in heavier weather. Although I’ve read, that with a tucked in reef she “stands up well to a stiff breeze” and may be sailed “pleasantly in winds of 30 knots” I still have the impression, that she is more a kind of a nice-weather-boat. After all, she is an open open and has no self bailing cockpit! Therefore: What are your first hand experiences with your Romilly in stronger winds, in bigger waves? How does she behave in gusts? Does she feel controllable and safe? Does she sail dry? When do you tuck in a reef, and when do you decide to stay in the harbour?
