A smaller fin will have a lot more influence on control and speed.
Next time I sail I'll try using my smaller fin (~30cm), footstraps completely back and out and mast track slightly back. I think with the smaller fin I should still be able to control the increased lift and might see some gains in top end speed.

Cheers.
