When the wind picks up, a good acronym to remember is TROLL:

Temporarily
Reduce
Overall
Luff and
Leech

If you just remember to TROLL (reduce your sail area), you will have no trouble keeping your old sails in good shape so you can keep those new sails untouched in their sails bags where they belong, as pristine as they were 20 years ago when you first bought them, while you proudly fly your old yellers!

I have a feeling you are a natural TROLL-er.
