When I first bought my boat, I noticed that it sometimes sailed better on one tack than the other. I have learned that, after I shut down the engine, if I set the 2-blade prop so that it is locked in a vertical position, it sails equally well on both tacks. If you have a 2-blade prop, try locking the prop vertically, and see if it helps.
