MW welcome to Sailnet...

You should have a small cable that runs along the leech of your sail from the top down, and ends in a small cleat.

Tighten that cable (pull down) to provide more support to your leech, till it stops fluttering. Then just release it around 1/4" and cleat it. Keep doing till it stops.

If you don't have one, and your sail has deformed it self slightly, get one done, its pretty easy, too. you can do it or ask a sailmaker to do it for you...
Bellow a photo of the cleat and leech line.
