Try adjusting your topping lift. Probably located on your boom, look for a line (not wire) on a horn cleat. This line will allow your boom to be lifted higher or lowered, as needed. Typically, when sailing the topping lift is loosened to permit the boom to ride as low as possible, thereby allowing use of the boom vang and mainsheet to advantage.
