Hey gim - welcome to SN dude. Though the following comment will draw howls of laughter from my fellow SNers (because I'm a super lousy sailor) my "advice" is that if you're experiencing that much weather helm, you've got too much sail up. I'd say reef and ease the main - and reduce your genny as well.
What do you guys think? Am I learning anything? Or is it hopeless?
Of course, if you want to "dip a rail" - I think you're already on the right track.
Hopefully this will bring along a few sailors that actually know what they're doing.
