capsizing too often!!!!

Sailnet Group,
Permission to come aboard? I am a new member to this group and I have a question about my new boat.... I recently picked up a Cyclone 13, I previously was sailing a sunfish, and I just sold a US Yacht 27. My question pertains to dingy sailing.... The Cyclone has a boom that while running tends to lift up at the clew and collapse the sail, which then results in an windward capsize after a death roll. because of the latten rig on the sunfish and the low profile sail plan this was never an issue. Can I rig something that will prevent the end of the boom from lifting any Laser sailors have experience with this??? Any advice or websites that might have rigging diagrams would be helpful.
Cheers
Cyclone

Not at all familar with your boat but what you are looking for is a boom vang. This is a line or tackle that runs from the base of your mast to a point about 35% aft of the goose neck.

Sailmc,
Yes I agree about the Boom vang how ever my boom hinges at the mast and when it is out all the way on a run it still has a tendancy to lift. Thank you for the response. I am playing with different rigging configurations I moved a block farther out on the boom and that helped.
Cheers
