Were you pinching because the boat was being headed away from the wind or was it that the boat was healed and there was too much water preasure on the leeward side of the boat.

Movement forward is better than pointing too high to spill and going nowhere?

I *think* I was pinching because I wanted movement forward over the ground when the wind (F5) and tide (at least 3kn, poss a bit more) were both against me. It was one of those days where anything less than as hard into the wind as possible probably meant we were going backwards.

Anyway, looks like F4/5 and westerlies forecast for Sunday again 🙂
