I think you've got it turned around, Dan and I are getting more out of
the sail than KenB is, and Terry is getting even more!!!

I'm not sure I buy the "sail efficency" bit though. If it was more
efficient to be on a "normally powered" sail than be way over-powered,
then the pro's wouldn't be rigging 5.0's in 3.0-3.5 wind conditions.
By that logic it seems that the ones with big sails would go slower
and thus not be winning, but they are going faster and winning.
