Is that slack, like just barely starting to wiggle. I sailed on one guy's boat and his leeward shrouds flopped around considerably. On my previous two boats, I would back off on leeward until they flopped and then took up the slack so they just stopped then made sure the stick was straight. I haven't messed with this boat yet.
