Helm goes in. Do not ease the main until you are head to wind.
Crew does not ease the jib until it has filled on the other side and the the cat has fully tacked.
Some Hobie sailors sail with one rudder blade up. It is not seamanlike and there is no gain.
Buy a modern cat and you will not have any problem tacking ! ! !
