I don't think a westsail will heave-to with just a storm jib. there is way too much windage up front to need it. You might email Dave King and ask him.

The idea is to keep the bow up into the wind and let it sail up and luff off. To do this you would need drive aft. That is the only way I have been able to get our 32 to do it.
