GREETINGS EATHLINGS: Well done for having the bottle to have a go on the oggin. One of the methods I use to slow the boat but still maintain steerage is to scanderlise the main (Yachie term for pulling on the topping lift to bring the boom to about 45 degrees) This slows the boat but still gives some forward mouvment . dont let them grind you down you whent for a sail they stayed ashore NERR NERR well done GO SAFE
