Well I have a roller furling so I have had to reduce sail because of gusts.

Something I have tried to work on..

Can someone double check my thoughts

Light Winds - blocks all the way up ( front ) to create a large pocket for wind
Normal Winds - blocks back some - less pocket
Heavy Winds - blocks all the way back - very flat sail.

Is my thought correct?
