I think you're on the right track, now. Usually, when people are trying to make the boat point, they trim the sails too
flat, and too
close to the centerline. There's a sweet spot that you have to find, where the sails are generating the maximum amount of power with the most pointing ability. You need both
power and pointing ability. You shouldn't give away too much of one in search of the other.
