Newport,


Sounds as if you do know how to manipulate sails to depower - good !

In waves/chop one can steer to reduce the pitching and amount of spary coming over the bow by working the tiller plus/minus 3-7 degrees.

Upwind - steer diagonally up the wave face and then straight down the back of the wave.
