Sail Trim question
seems like you''ve gone through all the obvious things to try. I also agree that moving the fairlead forward should help, but on the other hand will likely overpower you, since you really want to spill wind at the higher airspeeds. Maybe the sail really has seen the best days pass?
One thing to consider on a new sail, or maybe your sailmaker can retrofit this one, is to put a couple of battens into the sail. My new #3 has them, and they seem to work fine. The only limitation with them is that battened headsails and furlers don''t like each other ;-).
