First of all, bigger sheets will make the problem worse as they increase friction and grip in the cleat and are unnecessary. As folks have suggested going to ball bearing blocks will help. You might want to go to a 5:1 set up would help as well. (6:1 is too much purchase for the P-30). Using a hexratchet on the last turn also gives you a chance to play the sheet.
