sailing in circles! please help

I agree with bmcald that it sounds like lee helm. If that is the problem, you should re-adjust the mast stays so that the mast tilts slightly more aft than at present, and then test-sail the boat to see if the problem has improved. You might have to re-adjust them two or three times, until you get the right amount of weather helm.
