Faster, I hear you and have a suggestion. Next time you're out in ultra light conditions try flattening the sail and give the boat time to establish a steady speed. Then without changing anything else apply your topping lift as you suggest and watch the boat speed. I guarantee it will drop as the boom lifts.
