If you're out in conditions that warrant heaving to in a Rhodes 19, you should have stayed in port in the first place. Unless you feel like having a picnic lunch without having to anchor. In such a situation, you should be able to play around with the settings of your rudder & sails (as mentioned above) so you're comfortable and secure. If yours is a CB version, adjusting it in different ways will llkely also have an impact on your sail and rudder trim while hove-to. Keep a good lookout while hove-to -- you are still under way and subject to the rules of the road.
