Whats the highest wind speed you have ventured out in on your Scot?
We just ran a race this weekend where it was gusting to 25kts. Only one capsized under spinnaker when a massive shift hit them. A couple of boats returned jib-alone which was quite comfortable after stowing the booom.
I sailed #3732 from the DC waterfront to Alexandria on the eve of Hurricane Sandy. No idea how strong the wind really was but we planed all the way with the wind behind us, did a mammoth gybe and shot into the Washington Sailing Marina.
