Re: pointing, pinching, VMG

The short answer since you are using the a waypoint on your chartplotter, the fastest VMG is best.

As to your boat and sail trim, that's harder as every boat is a bit different. From your description, I would say you were overtrimmed, but it sounds like the boat was moving well.
