Heaving to - describe it please?
I have, at best, a rudimentary understanding of what heaving to is. Please help me by giving a more complete description.
Under what conditions can you/should you heave to?
What is the condition of the boat when hove to? Where is the wind? Where are the sails? Where is the rudder? Does the boat continue to move?
Finally, how the heck do you do it?
