If I had a guy in a laser 10 feet away from me I'd simply discuss the situation with him. Kinda like calling him on the radio only easier.

It has been done many times and written about a lot. The Smeeton's used to call it hoisting the "Twins". With both headsails up and no main the boat wants to run dead downwind. Try it!

You should question the instructor on why he is teaching you to pick up the buoy forward. Unless you are driving a very lage boat it is always easier to pick the buoy up aft.

I had a syn recut to be an A-sail and it worked really well for cruising but I didn't use it racing at all. A recut isn't as good as a real A-sail but close.

It is possible of course. Whether or not you do it depends on the direction the wind is coming from the strength of the wind and whether you can get it down quickly if the wind changes. With a very...

When you just sit and drift (without the anchor down or the sails up), at what attitude do you sit to the wind. Unless you sit with the wind directly on the nose, you will sail around at anchor. ...

Concur with the stern anchoring. That will probably settle you right down although it is kinda wierd. Otherwise you need an effective riding sail and the boat needs to be trimmed by the bow.

I find the "setting of the anchor" question interesting. Doesn't the anchor tend to set when the wind slowly builds and puts more and more strain on the anchor? Isn't that the same as backing down?...

I would guess that in a Maritime (Admiralty) Court the blame would be split (it always is). Both boats should have had a watch on deck if there was a risk of collision, even at anchor.

Quite the dissertation. I'd have to argue with the 80% power going backwards. That seems excessive to me unless your boat is way under powered. Some boats could drag their anchors around all day...
