After reading the good detail and experiences on sail trim-- couldn't agree more and one excellent option is a heavy weather headsail: my 75% used find on ebay has worked well. @Lafayette Mike I would agree with you -- jib or main alone (in everything other than ghosting conditions) will actually cause you grief -- balance is the key. Reefed main and small headsail ? you can withstand some damage from mother nature and still have control.
