Heave to in sailing

In sailing, the term "heave to" means slowing down the boat's progression in such a way that the boat doesn't need to be steered directly. Take a look at this instructional video and learn how to heave to in sailing. To do this, the rudder will need to be turned so it's forcing the bow into the wind. The rudder and the jib counteract one another in the process, and the boat ends up stalling.
