Re: I can't heave to

As I post this, I will give notice that I am brand spankin new to sailing.

When heaving to, should you end up at the "in irons" position or does it matter? Just as long as the tiller is locked leeward, the jib is backwinded and the main is in the opposite direction of the jib...

I haven't been out yet (I just finished a two day ASA101) so I want to make sure I have this figured out.

Thanks!
