The practices I have seen with thebest results are where you turn the boat around now, like right now and then get sail/motor going. The idea is to minimize the seperation. Yeras ago in Long Beach they used to run some seamansip races where an observer(from another crew) threw a weighted dummy over the side whilethe chute was up without any warning. This was some very good practical experience.
