Re: First time on the water today, I could use some advice!
I was always taught that gybe-ho (or whatever you want to holler) should only be called once the main has actually gybed as an indicator for whoever is doing mainsheet trim that it should be let out. The mainsheet trimmer may not have a view of the boom and therefore shouting gybe-ho prior to the sail actually gybing may mean that they let the main back out on the original side, crash gybe, parts of boat flying everywhere etc.
