What's with holding the windward sheet? Wouldn't it be a bit more prudent to man (er-feman?) the helm?

Re: "Moving Up to a Larger Boat" Videos

I leave one wrap on the windward winch. Seems to work well..doesnt fly around or inhibit quick tacking. But thats my boat...
With junk/toys on the foredeck, i dont want a loose sheet. Been there before...
Furling...i am always on both..no slack

I liked the vids. A strong teaching style. Joke around...later, after you learn it.
