English term or phrase: still just in from
As the acceleration man, the mainsail trimmer controls the biggest sail on the boat, responsible for the blistering speeds that the Extreme 40 can achieve. This crew member still just in from of the helmsman and puts the pedal to the floor by pulling the sail in and can slam on the brakes by letting the same sail out. Getting the correct sail trim takes skill and practice and a good mainsail trimmer can help a team achieve a slight difference in speed over other competitors.
