I have a preventer rigged. I find it only reduces stress a little because you aren't as worried about a crash gybe. But you are still on edge of constant trimming.

And if you have the preventer rigged you are out in the open, so then really isn't a good reason to not just adjust your course and make better speed to start with.

A chute is the bomb and a light weight reacher is probably even better (seems most of the light air I get into I need to reach or higher)
