Re: Heaving-to experiences/advice, and Jordan series drogue use

Hi Aldo, we’ve hove to once to fix a staysail sheet which was not holding.  Just had the reefed main up in 35 to 40 knots true.  The boat would lie sideways to the seas and winds and sit very quietly drifting downwind at 2 kn maybe.  Seas were not high west of Gibraltar so that was ok.  In more serious conditions, I would try to bring the bow up more with the mizzen.
