Re: If it's not luffing, it's helping?

I am just wondering if there is a point(dead into wind) when the main would hinder more than help. I am guessing, by what has been said, that if you must pull the sail past the centerline to stop luffing, it probably isn't helping power the boat forward or helping with fuel.
