Re: Heave To

Ive hoven-to with my boat, although never in the face of real storms. Works well with reefed main and slightly furled jib. Well ride easy in this arrangement, and Id 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.
