Re: Beating to windward
I try to trim as best as my ancient sails will allow. My boat is much faster with a little bit of main backwinded, the speed bubble, but then it's a classic big headsail/small main sail plan so a big chunk of the drive is coming from the genoa.
I like to trim fairly constantly, but that's just the style of sailing I do. If we're actually going somewhere (i.e. the Admiral is on board), I'll just trim it about right, tie off the tiller and leave the boat to it.
