c27 - that is my exact thing - you're describing my "worst case scenario" I was mulling over this morning.

So what to do then? I'm trapped going too fast downwind, sheeting in the main to centerline makes the boat turn hard and act like it is going to heel over and I'm feeling like I am in the handbasket to h-e-double hockeysticks.
