Height must be one of the most important things.
If I had been talking to sailors I would have mentioned height but in the rib market the is no a great deal you can do to improve height unless you have a big pole tied to your a frame.
0.5 of a metre will no make a change.
2m plus may have a bit of an effect.
10m will have a huge impact.
