Re: Super Maramu Heaving To sail combination?

David Vogel


Having tried various combinations with headsail out (various %s, and backed), we always seem to fall off and end up too far off the wind, and may be also broadside to the waves, resulting in more rolling motion. And making way.

Our last attempt upon arrival NZ, I tried 1/3 mizzen out, and backed, with no main or genoa – this seemed to work, but it was only for about an hour in stable wind-se conditions, so cannot yet recommend, but this is where I will start next time.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Super Maramu Heaving To sail combination?

I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet but thought I’d ask other SM owners what sail combo works best when Heaving To?
