Suggestions for light air vs storms

In the class that I took we had a bit of struggle with finding wind at one point. As a result, I watched the instructor make a few adjustments but said it was outside the scope of a brand new sailor. The one I can identify is the letting out the outhaul to catch more air in the main. Something was done in the "cars" that controlled the last angle to jib.

Generally what are some tips to increase performance in light wind and (other than reefing and dropping the headsail) decrease heeling in high winds.
