Don,t realy like the chicken jibe in the short heavy sea,s we get in the shallow
costal areas here on the East coast of Ireland in an East wind.
I like to reef down till I feel in control, roller boom is handy here, and bring her through on a tight main sheet.
With the Genoa rolled up to balance it comes across easy enough.
Dont like a dead run unless the wind is fairly light and the seas are settled.
Safe sailing
