All good points listed above. Is the bottom of your boat and rudder very clean. A crudded up hull can't point high despite quality well trimmed sails and a tuned rig. Assuming the bottom is clean are you able to at least match boat speed with other vessels in the fleet with a similar rating even though you can't point as high?
