Not every yacht/boat will heave to. Is a Rhodes 19 a 19 footer.
If so, then you can play with rig/sail config much easier than a larger yacht.
The theory is that the jib is backed and will push you off the wind. The main and the rudder will round you up - therefore play with the power of the 2 sails to get the desired effect.
Older designs will heave to more readily than a more modern design.
