What keel configuration do you have? If you have a shoal draft keel, you can't expect to point as high as boats with a deeper draft.

How is your rigging tune? Is the fore stay tight? Does the mast sag to leeward? You need to have the rig properly tuned with little sag in headsail.

Lastly, how are your sails? If they are bagged out you won't be able to point well either.

Good luck,
