If you try to self-tack it, it does tend to ride up a wee bit and lose some power. On a long tack to wearher, we put a wee kicking strap to the boom end and pull it down a little. It needs to be quite a long tack though or it's a bit of a fiddle, too often, to swop the kick strap from gunnel to opposite gunnel each time.
