Where in Colorado are you guys at? I'd love to hang out sometime and shoot the ****. I've been trying several of our magical storm tactics on the Colorado afternoon storms quite a bit recently... perhaps we could share ideas?

I am putting the Lancer in the water at chatfield this weekend, you're welcome to stop on by! PM me for my # if you want to.

When you are moving forward at about 1kt or less, it is Heave-to. When you are stopped in perfect balance under stormy conditions, then you are Hove-to.

Hope that helps. I guess you're supposed to move either very little, or not at all during this procedure. If you move too far forward, I believe the answer is to reduce sail area. That's at least what I've had going on with my boats.

With only a fin keel and the rudder below and the mainsail, holding your boat hove to maybe difficult or impossible without a backed jib or the assistance of a para-anchor. You don't want the boat to sail at all. Another option might be a storm trisail, but it would be experimentation.

Yes, Victoria's J-22s, usually on Cherry Creek. If you tried the mainsail only heave-to, how did it work?

keep it simple.

When you heave-to, use the jib. It's so easy then. let the boat, fullkeel or finkeel, settle down, and the rest is like driving in a parking lot, slow and simple.

If you do not use the jib, what what. it works so well with a jib and is such a crapshoot without one.

Practice. That is what works best with heave-to's, practice. do them when you don't really need them and get good at them. Then in that moment when you are all frantic, you'll look like a pro.

really.
