Re: Heaving to in cat?

But it is clear that you can heave it to further away down wind than up wind... and I'm not sure how to reef that cat to improve hove to performance, but if heaving to upwind, shaving the cat first will perhaps help.

Re: Heaving to in cat?

I like to heave to when sailing and trawling lines and hooking a fish . ( especially short handed)
So obviously this is not in extreme weather as then I don't fish.
I also don't fish with the asymmetrical up as you can't slow within a reasonable time and you tend to loose the fish.

I am talking about real fish here ;-) ( 2 x sailfish released and 1x Marlin)

I prefer at least a little "sail" on my "cats". 😈
