Could still be more at ease gybing. I know what I am supposed to do but still uncomfortable. You bring the boom in centered right?
You have the right idea for jibing. Just practice in light wind. I would avoid it all together over 15 knots of wind for now.
Might be a dumb question buy how do you avoid it. The other night we were sailing off an east wind in a south east direction. tacked across to a NE course then to a beam reach to a broad reachTo get back I needed to sail west. Couldn’t figure a way without a gybe. I hope i am not confusing you. thinking of it like a clock with the wind being 12 oclock. started out sailing to 2 and tacked to 10. Beam reach at 9 broad at 8 but still needed to get to six requiring a gybe. It wasn’t too bad. still not too crazy about running.
I whipped up a diagram for you. Check out the attachment. you can use this same method to get to a run on the opposite tack. you will however need to bring the jib over, but that is not a big deal.
In the future if you want to run for long distances rig up a preventer. Otherwise, just make a series of broad reaches to avoid running all together.
