Very nice WS!

Now, I've got a question on your sail trim...since everyone always hammers me on my crappy trim when I post a pic, I'm trying to learn....

It looks like you're on a "fat" beam reach? When I'm on a similar point in my C27 with a fresh breeze (15+) I'll see the same luffing in my main that you've got in the vid. What should I do to trim for that...traveller up/down, a lot of vang, etc?

It looks like yours is a ketch, so maybe this doesn't apply as much to you as it does to me on a sloop - but I'm just curious.

Thanks.
