The issue I have had going to weather in the Leopard cats is that the sheeting is so far outboard. I carry a couple of snatch blocks and rig up barber haulers with dock lines to pull the jib sheet inboard. With some fiddling you can get 20 or 30 degrees more to windward.

sail fast and eat well, dave
