Hi Roger,

the point is, he didn't say/write not to close the gap, he just said not to close just for the sake of closing it. He also wrote somethign along the lines that race sails were explicitly designed to work with a "closed gap" (but somewhat indirectly, more like mast upright max pulling power, and then voila, the gap is closed (again, applies in general to some/all free race/race sails)race sails).

So, nobody's saying your advice is wrong, just that the guy cribb quoting thing by you and others is a bit way off and out of context.
