Are you still with us, Eric?

Take a pair of twins of equal ability, using their biggest Sailworks sail. The brother who follows the guidelines you read will be able to plane at a lower wind speed than the brother who always sets his downhaul at maximum recommended. The sails have a good range adjusting only the outhaul, but I don't think anyone can really argue that you don't get more range when using the full downhaul and outhaul adjustment ranges.
