Gromet type questions

1) I pitchpoled 5 times in one afternoon the other week in a force 6, mainly on a broad reach. I've seen people standing on the bit of hull behind the tramp when helming, which presumably helps to keep the nose out the water. Is this a good idea and does it work, or should I just power off a bit?

2) Has anyone got any tips for stopping the mainsheet dragging in the water when helming from the trapeze?
