Woah, woah, woah. WTH?
With just a main up (I assume full canvass since he mentioned going straight to the heave to instead of reefing) - and the tiller only 20 degrees to leeward, aren't you going to round up at the first big gust?
What am I missing here?
It wouldn't be full mainsail. It would be a mainsail reefed down for the wind conditions. In sea-states where you're worried about creating a slick, you'd typically be fully reefed or flying a trysail.
