A few times with my AS I have poled it out. I have done the tack a few times, works, altho not enough time to say I have it ALL figured out as of yet. I've also poled out the clew a few times, works ok also, but again, not enough time to say it always works.
With a Genoa, yes DDW with the clew poled out works well wing on wing.
I also have a mast head setup.
Also as I am typing this, some of the ACC boats are using AS spins with a pole on the tack to pull it to the opposite side a small amount. They then do not use a symetric near as i can tell as primary sail. I could also be a bit wrong on this too.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
