Re: jibing correctly?

I do pretty much what you describe except I have a wheel so I'll turn rather slowly and as te boat swings I'll begin sheeting in so that the sail will be in the middle at the same time as it wasnts to cross.
If the wind is really light, then I'll just sheet in the main about halfway, and right as the wind passes through the centerline of the boat I'll grab the whole gob of mainsheet between the blocks and pull the sail across and ease it over and then play out the mainsheet again on the new side.
