Re: What went wrong while sailing downwind?
sounds like you did good. if you have the shoal draft model then you did really good. some have less the 2' of draft and would be handful dead down wind in a blow. like Faster said sail on a broad reach and as you jibe pull the traveler and sheet all the way in and then turn the boat to jibe and then let it all out again.
