Re: pointing, pinching, VMG

Do you get the same phenomenon in stronger wind?. How far do you need to let sails out to get them looking good? Do you trim front to back? Is the jib over trimmed closing the slot and making the main luff? Do the shapes of jib and main match?
I like you donít understand this. Have gone faster with part of the sail out of trim and the rest good at times but not the whole thing.
