Just to throw in my two pence on the heaving to methods. This is sort of a Pardey adaption. I just had my W32 out overnight in 25 knot winds and 3-5 ft. quite choppy headseas. One reef in the main and boomed just a couple of feet to leeward from the centerline, backed stays'l sheeted hard, no heads'l, tiller to leeward but not all the way, held in place by bungee chords. Bungee chords rock! VERY comfortable and easy. Highly recommend the bungee chords to everyone. I just had bunches of the little cheesy ones with the built in hooked ends. Worked perfectly.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
