Of course, that only works if you're going upwind at the time of the MOB incident... if you're going downwind or on a reach, you'll have to do something a bit different.
Crazy Dog...my mother used to say:
"If you have nothing good to say..better say nothing"...or something like that...
This because, as you can see in my quote from the second paragraph of my introductory post, I say:
"this manouver is particularly imortant to know and know how to execute in case of a MOB situation, while sailing upwind
at high speeds.."
you blind bastardo sujo.....no bone for you tonight!
