Hi Theodore, Thanks for getting back. No I'm not confused on the terminology of bearing or or heading up, but perhaps I am misreading which way the boat want to go during the capsize. It happens pretty quickly and my mind is focused on trying to stop it. What I do know for certain is that as I am sailing close hauled and I start to bear off away from the wind the boat does indeed want to heal to the side I am sitting on. The most likely contributer is that I am about 35lbs overweight for the boat (working on it) so I would expect the boat does not respond exactly as designed. There might even be centrifical force involed. Your statement about maintaining proper sail trim during the maneuver is probably in play as well. I'll focus on that the next time I go out. Still getting used to the boat. Like I said it is quite a different animal than my last boat. But you may be correct that I am confusing which way the boat start to head during the capsize.
