Now that you’ve held your lane, you’re free to go anywhere. The left side of the course is favored, so you need to sail “fast forward” to the left. This is accomplished by sailing slightly lower but faster through the water. A similar VMG to the mark but gets you the positioning further to the left side of the course. If overpowered, add backstay and let the traveler down. Just “lay” on the jib slightly, making the leeward telltales start to dance. Easing the traveler and pulling the backstay on reduces power and drag in the back of the sail plan, allowing the boat to bear away slightly without heeling more, resulting in a faster lower mode. If the power is perfect, only the smallest change is needed. Ideally, keep the same amount of heel. If the power is perfect, you likely don’t want to change the backstay and negatively affect the jib. In this situation, a little traveler down works well. Simply bear away and reduce the drag in the main ever so slightly.
