That "no fending off" is something I will really have to watch whenever I go to a bigger boat. If I have the sails down, I can control my boat pretty well. That came up over in "learning to sail" the other day; a guy was worried about docking downwind and it turned out he has a 15' boat. I told him what I do is get the sails down and then head straight at the dock. I hope I didn't suggest a bad habit for the future.
