I’ve kept my ballooned up way beyond recommended wind speed mainly because I left it too late. We just furled down to storm job size and ran downwind overnight until the wind dropped then dropped and got back on our proper course. Depends where you are in relation to land and distance to go.
One of the reasons that both headsails fuel together. Question to ask is “can I manage without my Genoa if things get worse?”
