Quickstop COB recovery
I, too, was taught the figure 8 method. I have a question on the quick stop. If it is really windy how is the boat kept under control, by a single person left on board, as it goes from into the wind to beam on to wind aft through a jibe, etc. Isn''t there an issue of getting slammed over with the main sheeted in? I''m talking reasonable breeze here over 20 knots or so.
