I didn't say anything about how the sail was trimmed... just that the wrinkles are telling me the halyard needs to be tightened, and the outhaul eased a bit.
Without seeing the position of the boom relative to the boat, it could be overtrimmed or undertrimmed...and you'd never know.
Experience has taught me that most sailors overtrim their sails...and when in doubt, ease it out....

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
