Get the sailmaker out. Deck cleat... remove it, or get a couple of wiffle golfballs, tie them together with a small length of bungee, cut a small slot in each ball between a couple of the holes for the ends of your horn cleat, stick the balls on the cleat and call it good.

The luff is flapping? Do you mean leach?
