Re: Poor tacking on a Hobie

in light air and chop or current let the boat sail it self up until you back wind the jib. ease the main. when the boat is turned to new tack then switch the jib and sail new tack. if the backwinded jib stops you and you move backwards then reverse the rudders and back the boat into the new tack
