Hi
Keep the mizzen sheeted in hard, likewise the main, with some way one put down the helm, don’t touch the jib till through the winds eye, keep the jib backed then shift when wind indicator shows 30 deg , ease the main ease the mizzen then gradually harden up .
Your not on a skimming dish and using the bowthruster is allowed, enjoy your sailing
