Any tips on how to more easily release the sheet from the rear position is high winds?

Hanging onto an uncleated sheet even with 3:1 is no fun in big winds. The angle is just bad when in the cam cleat

The simplest solution is to fit the Harken HK 476 Micro X-Treme Angle Fairlead. That way the sheet can be released from any angle even hiked out.
Sadly the pice are gone but more info here

A good swift kick with your right big toe! It’s so much fun to do, that you got me wanting to take the boat out tomorrow!
