    Hi all and best wishes for the holidays !

    Using MaxSurf VPP is there a way to limit heel angles, say to 20 degrees for instance ?
    and/or force reefing the sails earlier ?
    In some cases with TWS at 20N i get some equilibrium heel angles over 30 degrees and little reefing (eg 0.98 !) ,
    while i know from navigation experience on similar boats, i would go as fast (if not faster) and certainly with more comfort with more reefing and less heeling.
    Many thanks for your help
