We should have figured this out by now.Dead downwind, we  sail wing on wing with one crew sitting on the forward hatch, the driver sitting to leeward (defined as the boom side). Where should the jib/whisker pole trimmer sit?copasetic

In light winds we heel the boat to windward by having skipper and crew on weather side - weight as far forward as you can, but not forward of the mast

in heavy wind - still heel to windward, but weight back in cockpit.

and usually someone sitting on the boom in all weather

they are really sensitive to weight placement - watch your knot meter as you move weitght around to get the fastest position.
