LEARNING THE DO'S AND DONUTS
"But the fun wasn't over yet. All sail was still up and luffing, and Autant was still making way, the anchor line streaming aft from the bow. Suddenly, the boat stopped hard in her tracks, tugging at the anchor. The bow became a pivot around which Autant swung broadside to the wind. The sails filled. In a moment we were broad reaching under full sail around the anchor. A gibe was imminent. I fled to the cockpit and hauled in on the mainsheet to ease the shock on the rig. Just in time! "
