tommays will become famous soon enough
If your sailing upwind during puffs you should try sailing higher (more into wind)than normal during the puff as this will reduce the sails power and your heel

If thats not enough than just dump the main during the puff and the jib will keep you going

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
