Heaving-To

It is important for safety that you understand how to "heave-to".
When you are successfully hove-to, your sailboat will be in a stable situation with the mainsail and headsail still up. Your forward speed will be minimal and you’ll be sliding downwind slowly under full sail and nearly stopped!
This makes it an ideal strategy for any safety situation or when you want to take a break.
