Question Rigging

I returned from a summer in Colorado to find that my rigging was, out of tune. The cap shrouds were tighter than before and my lowers were," Loose as a Goose". She's a Bavaria 37 with Selden spars, double swept spreaders, fractional sloop rig.
I retensioned the rig using the "Folding Rule" method as described at the Selden site.
During my test sail the boat sails much faster,(almost a full knot) on a starboard tack. What have I done wrong?????
Please advise...Thanks Gerry
