The way I was taught to "heave to" was to tack but leave the leeward sheet (now becoming the windward sheet) cleated. Now I have the jib backwinded. The problem is that the jib sheet is laying across the windward shrouds and putting a lot of sideways pull on the shroud, not to mention the tendency to chafe.

How do others handle this?
