Looks like loads of rudder angle.
What was the wind speed and sail plan? If she was over like that a lot, I wonder if more twist in the main, or a reef may have been faster.

Winds 25+NE, #1 and full main due to a 4min30s late start (no excuses as to why we were holding that sail plan at this late point). We were doing 9.5+kts boat speed with this setup sooo, yeah, doing okay regardless!

we did get a reef in not long after that


as the rail-meat reported that the top half of the main was doing nuttin!


the brainstrust later reported back


that the helm had apparently lightened considerably


and zig-zagging the rolling NE swell became easier 


but we may have dropped a 1/4 knot?
