I have started to do that Pedro. That doesn't give me the best velocity made good (VMG) for my boat.
In your mind which is better. you sail into a puff and the apparent wind angle increases, do you chase the tell tails and heat up immediately or steer straight or bear off slightly ease the sails at the same time. When the boat comes up to speed then head up slightly at close-hauled sail trim ?
