Several people have mentioned winching in the mainsheet, then quickly letting it out on the other tack as the stern comes through the wind.
Why is it okay to winch in the mainsheet at your leisure before the gybe, if it's so important to let it out quickly on the other? Do you not risk a pre-gybe broach if you spend too much time with the main close to center prior to the turn?
