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

Agreed. Very well written and informative.
Everyone should know how their boat performs when hove-to.
Ever heard of fore reaching? Drop or furl the jib and cheat upwind as much as you can without getting in irons. Requires much more attention then heaving-to.
