Re: Give me a break: Techniques for Heaving-To

Thanks for the write-up Kev. I haven't practiced heaving-to in anything but mild conditions. I am not following why you winch the genoa onto the windward side b/f tacking in windier conditions. If the tack is done slowly, does the genoa pop full of air as violently? (when heaving-to I usually coast in irons for a few seconds to kill most of my forward momentum, then complete the tack).
