Not just side-to-side trim ...
Yup, have to second what jackdale said. Paying close attention to weight distribution does play a huge roll in overall boat speed. We constantly move crew around as conditions and point of sail changes.
Using advice obtained here last winter, our overall performance this last season was much improved.
Especially noticed during distance races.
