Sunshine in April

The "Secret Harbour" on Peel Island

Trying out a technique for heavy weather. Take the main and mizzen down, using just a small jib pulled tight to the centre. The boat seemed very settled and drifted downwind, with the jib holding the bow in place. To further increase the effect, it would be possible to use some warps or sea anchor tided to the stern.
