Re: Heave To
I’ve hoven-to with my boat, although never in the face of real storms. Works well with reefed main and slightly furled jib. We’ll ride easy in this arrangement, and I’d certainly use it as a storm tactic should the need arise.
Of course, my boat is the textbook design for this kind of maneuver: full deep keel, heavy displacement, cutter.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
