I've just about got the main all the way up when WHOOPS! Off the wind she falls and my crew tells me "I can't hold her!"
I agree with all those that say going from a wheel to a tiller or vice versa can take a bit of getting used to. But, if the sheet was still tight and she was only off by a small bit, the sail would fill and I can understand how she would not have been able to hold her. Ease the sheet and let it be slack and you have more wiggle room.
