While it is windy, boat appears to be at hull speed plus, I know a few folks that will use jibs below a spin in heavier air to blanket the spin some, to make the boat easier to handle when the wind pipes ups, this is what could be happening in the photo, but up the staysail, still retain some drive, yet blanket the spin so one does not go over, etc.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
