Re: I can't heave to

I agree that you're going to want to find the balance to be able to heave-to in all conditions

But, if the wind is typically only 5 kn. or less, and you have room with no one near you, just head up ease the sails a bit put a bungy cord on the tiller and do what you need to do.. how much trouble can you get into going 2 kn.
