Agree with Alex_sauvage - yes, seriously. Easier to manoeuvre dead slow into the wind in reverse when your bow doesn't get blown off by the wind, as it does in fwd. Plus the communications and geometry advantages mentioned previously. Works great in any typical modern monohull with short keel & spade rudder (except in sizable waves or big current).
