I capsized a 15' centerboard last year on an dead downwind accidental gybe, good times. Invaluable learning experience. The very next week I found myself in the same situation but I was able to save myself

I am still getting comfortable with being dead downwind. It's not my favorite, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Did you know there is a clothing company called "gybe-ho"...

But if you want to know the procedure for actually doing it using a spin...:

Back in the '70s it was called "Jive-ho", but that was something altogether different.

"i've fallen and i can't get up"
sometimes, i wonder how many of us here, fall into that category.
i won't even touch on the trips aspect..memory lane or no.

Boom!

I've only been BOOMED once years ago, glasses overboard, BLECH.
My excuse: 4 cigar boats aimed right at us and a crew person who couldn't shut up. OK, OK, no excuse!

BTW, it's hard to steer a tiller whilst sitting down without an extension.

My solution: I NEVER sail downwind without a preventor. My hook up now is two lines, one port side, one starboard running from the boom awl up to the bow, then back to the cockpit. That way I can set it up and release instantly.

I'd have to stand on my bimini to get hit by the boom.

I've never sailed with a preventer but when one has it up, how does the boat react when an accidental gybe SHOULD have happened?

Does the boat heal momentarily to windward and then settle back down?
Does the main get backed out? What about the jib?
Anything one should do with the tiller to react to it?
