Hi BelSkorpio, It is a nice article indeed. A flat profile has better lift/drag ratio and works with smaller AoA, to some extend. So I fully understand the use of adjustable outhaul for that purpose. My question was about wind strength, not direction. But I can understand that even the best sail in the world may become backhanded and require some trimming. BTW aren't all sails like that?
