Re: Where to te forced go sailing downwind?

How is it that the rig has less force when heeling? I can guarantee you that your rig has more force on it at 10 of heel than at 5. When sailing DDW your boat is moving forward thus reducing force on the rig. On a beam reach your boat moves very little laterally other than heeling.
