  • On a single hander if you want to stop and have a rest you should adopt the lying to

  • position. Here, the sail flaps with the boom well clear over the side and the boat will

  • almost stop. To get to this situation, first position the boat somewhere between a beam

  • reach and a close reach point of sailing, then release the mainsheet so that the sail

  • flaps and half raise the centreboard. The boat should almost stop. Maintain a good look

  • out and adjust the tiller to maintain a steady position relative to the wind. To slow you

  • even further you can also release the kicking strap. To get out of the lying to position

  • simply lower the centreboard, pull in the mainsheet and off you go.

  • Whilst tacking across the wind you may straighten the rudder too soon. Here you will be stuck

  • in the no go zone with the bow of the boat pointing head to wind. This is called being

  • stuck in irons. If this happens don’t worry. You need to force the bow of the boat to one

  • side of the no go zone or the other. To achieve this, push the mainsail out by hand as far

  • as you can with the boom, this will force the wind to hit the back of the sail which

  • will introduce drive and start to push you backwards. To turn the bow away from the wind

  • you then need to push the tiller towards the boom.

  • Once the boat has travelled about 90 degrees you can then release the boom, straighten

  • the tiller and then quickly pull in the mainsheet and sail away. In short it is a push on the

  • boom and a push on the tiller and then pull a on the mainsheet and a pull on the tiller.

  • If you sail in windier conditions everything is the same but events happen considerably

  • faster. You will notice that the boat will turn faster, the sail flaps louder, and the

  • boom travels across the boat faster. You should consider reefing the mainsail on windy days,

  • this reduces the amount of sail area and takes some of the power away. Watch our Rigging

  • and Reefing video to see how reefing

  • is done.
