pirateaaron is on a distinguished road
Set your sails up for heavy breeze(Halyard,outhaul and vang on pretty good) if you cant flatten your sail with your controls on.. the sail is cooked. It is possible that it may not even be the right sail for the boat, someone may have just found a deal on a sail that was close to the right size and slapped it on.
Also if you like the Hughes you should check out a Hughes 38. You can get some nice ones for a very reasonable price.The boat was Sparkman Stevens designed and would make a much better racing boat than the 31.
