heaving to

A distinct disadvantage. I went out the other day singlehanded on a Pearson 23C, a cat boat. Nice boat. Easy to tack and jibe singlehanded because you don''t have to tend to jib sheets.

However, I think any advantage of its ease in sailing is outweighed by its inability to heave to, especially if you''re alone.
