I just looked here. Is someone saying position of the trav does not affect heel angle? Okay, sure, whatever you say.

If the sail trim is constant, then you are right.
The traveller angle does not alter the heel angle of the boat if the sail trim is constant.

You got it right first time, bestfriend.

Sorry, Tomaz, I didn't mean to make fun, but when a Slovene, a Portuguese and a Scotsman start arguing about the physics of sailing, some humour is going to erupt somewhere.

Wait a minute! Although I don't even want to weigh in on all the geometry and drawings, the traveler can and does reduce heeling.
Many novices in a puff ease the mainsheet and head up into the wind to level the boat out. Many advanced sailors do it with the traveler and leave the mainsail alone. Since apparent wind comes aft in a puff, easing the traveler maintains the angle the apparent wind makes with the luff of the sail. Or at least my instructor and Steve Colgate say it is so.

Now, back to your geometry lessons! This is not rocket science.

If you're mucking with the traveler, you're affecting the mainsail...by definition... I think Tommy meant to say leave the mainsheet alone.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
