Re: Give me a break: Techniques for Heaving-To
I heave-to regularly.
The MOB I teach involves heaving-to immediately and for the pick up.
I usually heave-to prior to that teaching the MOB to determine how the boat behaves while hove-to. There is a lot of difference between main driven boats and genoa driven boats. We will have lunch - I have even fired up the BBQ.
