I am very new to sailing. I have only sailed Hobie Cats. But I am going to buy a West Wight Potter and my question is this: How does one tack properly? I fear that I could dismast the boat in a hard tack. When turning, does the boom swing hard over? Or is it like the Hobie, a dead calm, then manually throw the boom over? I dont want to hurt the boat or get stranded. Thank you.
