Isn't it fair to say that crew placed to windward are having less of a negative impact on heel than crew placed to leeward. Crew placed to leeward would have a greater lever, but working against you? They may or may not have a positive affect to windward, but ultimately, you are eliminating as much of the negative affect as you can.
