That makes sense to me. Instead of having the main sheeted in pretty tight to balance out the jib, you could drop the jib and leave the main quite a bit looser.I have found our C22 heaves to best with no jib, just a main. Believe it or not. I discovered this by accident one day when the wife was changing headsails while we were hove to in 17-ish knots.
The boat presents her bow quarter to the seas rather than her stern quarter, creates a better slick, and moves much slower. Makes no difference in benign conditions of course, but definitely better in a blow.
Of course one of the nice things about heaving to is that you don't have to drop or raise a sail.
