Re: what did I do wrong?!
Full genoa 155? or 135? definitely too much headsail, sadly if the main wasn't eased, the boat would have griped and rounded UP not down.
Better to flatten the heck out of the main dump traveler, and if that isn't enough, vang on, and dump mainsheet... but also move genoa cars aft , and allow the genoa to twist off, but surely a smaller headsail or even a partially reefed headsail (furler after all) would have been better.
Or fly it all and stack up 4 or 5 200lb crewmates on the rail!
