On our boat (frac, big main small jib) the amount of weather helm varies greatly with point of sail. Close to beam reaching in a breeze can load up pretty good whereas on the wind it's just about right.
I do think it's preferable to lee helm...
yup, ditto to what 'speedy' says
Not fractional though, but works effectively the same
