That's pretty awesome. I haven't done that yet but need to learn the maneuver.
The very first tack I did was a jibe. I didn't have enough room to turn to port, so I had to turn to starboard with the wind coming aft, so it was to be a jibe. BUT, I knew how to do it, thought about it, and went for it. By the time the wind was directly aft and the main luff'd, I had trimmed in the main all the way so it was just a small "pop" over to the other side and started letting her out. Textbook jibe. I was so happy I considered renaming my boat the Jibe Turkey.
