Heaving to

So here I am heaving to. Catalina 25, 15 to 20 knots, Genoa rolled up about 5 feet.

The boat was perfectly balanced making about 3 knots, probably more than half current.

I'm not to sure I'm happy with the sail being bent over the stay like that.
I'm thinking that before I heave to next time it would be better to roll the Genoa down to 100 percent so it clears the stay.

What do you think?
