Not having owned an F18 before, where is everyone putting the mast rotation when the spinny is up. Coming from using an A class mast where one simply lets off the mast rotation and the mast generally goes fully out and that is considered to be the strongest axis for the mast, is the F18 any different ?

Some at my club are saying that the mast shouldn't be let out significantly from the upwind position but my worry is that should on A Class terms put the mast into its weakest position. Am I correct on this.
