You may be pulling the tiller too fast and too far and stalling the boat. Take it easy and with practice you"ll master the technique. 16 are a piece of cake to tack compared to the 14 that has no jib.

Re: roller plotter or parallel rulers?

The problem with both rolling plotters and parallel rules is that in a moving boat, they tend to slide. A minor slide and you screw up your plotting. My solution (not patented yet) is to use a...
