Eric, Whatever sails you have up in the wind you have is the right sails. You are surely reefed down if you want to heave too. Simply tack the boat over, do not release any sheets. As the bow goes through the the wind, turn the wheel all the way the other way, lash it down with a bungee cord,rope,whatever, go get a beer. The boat will make about 1 1/2 to 2 knots, very quiet and calm. Ask your friend Roberto, he was with me off the coast of Peru last year when we hove to for 30 hours. John "Moondog" SM 248
