Hi Roger, quick question on the side: assuming the sail is rigged ok and lines are centered but you are overpowered - how do you prevent the "Robin Hood stance"? (I'm not sure if you call it the same, but I'm sure you know what I mean - at some point when overpowered it's impossible to sheet in and you need to push the sail hard away from you with your front hand while having back arm bent and it looks like you were doing archery not windsurfing, thus the name "Robin Hood stance" )

One formula sailor I know said you just move the lines way back and bite the bullet.
I'm not afraid of extra power, but how do you handle it, because "Robin Hood stance" is very uncomfortable.
