Re: Learned a new thing about my boat yesterday
That's the beauty of having weather helm, rather than lee helm. Sailing close-hauled, or even on a reach, with some weather helm results in a negative-feedback system. Try the same thing with lee helm and you'll have a positive-feedback system, with far less desirable results.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
