jibe question


I was sailing last weekend on the Hudson i was sailing south east on a port take the wind was pretty much coming from behind me. The current was also going south. I wanted to turn around to head back north. I tried turning but lacked boat speed to complete the turn. How do I keep up boat speed on a 180 deg turn when sailing with a strong wind behind you?
