not steal the thread, but i have tried back winding my working jib, luffing the main and putting tiller over hard to leeward. the boat stalls but then starts to make forward progress, however slight, the slick is always behind me. I have tried playing with rudder angle...and it only pics up speed the more i center the rudder. What could I be doing wrong.

BTW..Alberg 30...seems like it would heave rather easily.


thanks
