learned to heave to

weekend before lase we went out practicing our technique.

winds were 25-20kts blowing offshore.

we went out the Beaufort inlet and the wife practiced tacking and jibing.

I decided to practice heaving to... it worked well.

I do have a question though....

everything i have read here says you are supposed to STOP moving. We were still moving forward at about 1knt...

is that what is supposed to happen?
