I am not trying to pick on OP, just to suggest that there is another way to overcome the problem, which seems to be working well as another poster suggested. If one is having problems driving boat into the wind backwards, you can always unfurl a little bit of the jib with both sheets tight. It will work as a wind-wane and keep the bow pointed downwind
