Your looking for a much more flat shape with sail more like the skin on and airplane wing

As there shown in the pictures with the mainsail being so lose every which way it would never take the boat upwind
I was sailing with a mainsail split completely at the first reef. That was a worn weather main that just let me cruise around on days the wind was gusty.

I have brand new North Sail made sails jib and main. The pictures are a progression- I really hope you all realize this. Look at the dates.
