Yes - as sails stretch they will be subtle differences in trim, that being said your sails may have been originally cut for light airs and have more draft to start off with.


Used racing sails are surprisingly inexpensive, hotshots use their sails for one season ( or less ), there are a couple of shops that specialize in this.

A buddy of mine bought a brand new looking Kevlar race sail which fit his late 1980's Danish cruiser for $300 !
