Thanks for that info jme, that gives me a good starting point. I thought they
might have heaved-to with just the tripple reefed main.

This is a subject that has been replied to earlier. In review reduce the main to
the 3rd reef. Bring it tight flat to the centerline or very slightly to windward
Reduce the head sail to a position that puts the clue well inside the most
forward stay. Back wind the head sail turn the wheel to windward and tie it off.
Then go have a cup of tea until it gale blows itself out. We've done it in 35-50
it's and very big seas.
