Remember, I said "slightly oversheeting." As in an extra half-turn on the winch beyond normal trim. No "gorilla tension" was involved.

So, are you saying that the apparent reduction of weather helm was not caused by the slight oversheeting? What is the theory behind your statement "the higher the wind strength, the further AWAY the jib/genoa has to be from the mainsail"?

Not calling you out on it, but I'm just wondering what the physics of the thing are.
