Proper use of the Traveler

I think the most common use for a traveller is to use it to dump the main during puffs while sailing close-hauled. As the puff hits and weather helm develops, you ease the traveller down to spill air and reduce weather helm and heel.

This assumes your traveller is rigged with lines and blocks to allow you to move it while the main is under load.
