The first thing to do is look up. Do you have any extra halyards that could be fouling? How much backstay tension have you got? If you have an adjustable backstay, ease it off. If that doesn't do it, pull the sail off and inspect and test your swivel. You may need new bearings in the top, bottom or both.
