Suggest you look more closely during the America's Cup next time around when the boats are running. Many race boats do, in fact, if they have the capability, lean their rigs dramatically forward on downwind legs.

Admittedly it's not something you see much of during the local club events.
Agreed but I was discussing pointing ability.
