Reverse gear when sailing?

I was just reading some notes from the past owner of my yacht and they say put the gear shift in reverse went sailing because gear is not being lubricated on prop shaft. Is this right should I be putting the gear leaver in reverse when sailing and not in neutral and letting the shaft spin
