Wouldn't you want to release the vang to allow some twist since you were overpowered?
That's not the way I was taught in my ASA classes. Putting on the vang flattens the sail and depowers. Letting out the traveler dumps wind without losing the sail geometry (twisting).
Twisting is a bad thing, if I'm remembering my lessons correctly.
