Hey Derek,
You are free to sail with more crew, some boats regularly race with 4 people
(Usqebaugh). It just gets kinda crowded on the boat, which makes tacking
slower. Also, downwind, the extra weight slows you down. We recently did a
beercan with 5 people and that worked really well in 20+ kn wind,
