Ayrodynamics of Sailing

Jeff H is right that this is a very technical quiestion, but there''s also an easy answer - trimm the sail all the way in for sailing close to the wind (30 -45 degrees off your bow), half way out when the wind is across your beam and all the way out when the wind is behind you. Now make fine adjustments for everything in between.
