handling gusts

When I am about to be hit by a big gust of wind, I have always had a tendency (from dinghy days I suppose) to head in to the wind a bit to spill some air and preventing a big heel. An "old salt" told me that I should actually bear off the wind a bit. Seems the opposite of what I should be doing.


I am not really from Toronto
