Hi, I just experienced this very thing. Are you saying I should be able to adjust the sails
so I don't get tired pulling the tiller to me for hours? The boat was heeled over as far as I have had it, but continually wanted to come into the wind
. Do I tighten the jib
, loose the mizzen? What about the main. I was on a beam reach.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. But WOW! sailing is so much more fun with actual wind!
