I wanted him to hold it using the leverage of the winch(s), yet, able to dump in case of unexpected gusts. Like I said, I was pushing the boat and myself to a learning point. And, I did learn a great deal that day. One thing I learned is not to be afraid healing over 35 degrees or more. I think the only way to get better is to push it close to the line, every once in a while, to know how to react when you need to really know.150 up and your crew is holding the sheet and not cleating it!! Well I hope you learned something from this experience.
