Re: another (easy to answer) roller furler question

This begs a question for me:
If he is participating in Wednesday nigh beer can races, assuming his 150% doesn't reef well and he can't change sails quick enough to be practical, which is more important; sail area or higher point of sail? If he's racing with a 100% jib in 10 kts, does he sacrifice that much in the lesser sail area?
