I heave to to make dinner and catch fish...in severe weather I put the wind on my quarter and try and make 4-5-6 knots and as much as possible get in sequence with the wave train.

Don't confuse heaving to in moderate-to-bad conditions with survival storm techniques.

Omatako,

The best response I have to your questions is to purchase the book. The authors answered all of your questions, address the debate pertaining to sea anchors and when to use them, plus provide information from a host of veteran ocean racers, nearly all of which were extremely knowledgeable about heaving to V/S trying to outrun storms. Obviously, there is no one size fits all in the scheme of things. If this were the case no one would every get into trouble during a storm. And, if you could accurately predict a storm's path, there are some folks at NOAA that would be willing to pay you some big bucks, especially during hurricane season.

Good Luck,

Gary
