If the wind is calm enough to throw the boom over by hand, check that the boom isn't resting on the rigging first. Then grab the purchase and throw it to the other side as you steer DDW.

When it's honkin, heat it up a bit and really start flying. THen drive deep and sheet in quickly. As the boom comes over your head, pull the main sheet out of the cleat and smoke it until it comes close to the rigging. Don't let it hit. Now mess with your jib.
