When I was learning on a 29' C&C we had to have the wheel all the way over to leeward. Once tied off, the bow would countinuousyl swing left and then back right as the wind and rudder fought. When we saw the swirling water behind the rudder we knew we were good. The swirling helped to keep some of the swells around the boat down. We were good until a boat came screaming at us on auto pilot.
