Re: Heave To

Ed do you think in this day and age the ASA manual should be changed?

Had a ASA trained sailor as crew on passage. When a squall passed through he attempted to hove to. Boat tacked and went to a reach putting the rail down. Taught him to just tuck another reef and sail on. All smiles. Don’t like anyone even attempting the technique as with the storm jib stay up the sheet chafes on it.
