In addition to my previous reaction to Damon, I like to add some comment about two questions:

The principle behind this gybe-technique is the manner you jibe on a sailing yacht. So you start moving to the leeside of the boat (on a cat you can even hang your legs overboard) and start turning off the wind.
On my cat I can do that steering directly with my arm or even with my feet. Then leading the sheet over my head when the sail comes. Turning on my bottom brings me to the other site of the cat (with no danger of getting tangled in my net tramp!)

The other topic is ofcourse my opinion regarding to not be able to right the cat after a flipover. I was always loudly condemming this behaviour.
Now being forced in that position, I have to humble admit that I changed that opinion. With the only excuse that I still am a sailing northsea junkie.

I will not give it up !!!!
