Re: Starwind 13.5 assistance
looks kind of Laser-like.
Cheap ghetto fix: tie a small block snugly to the boom midway between stern and midships--ie where you get caught when it hangs down in that temporary belly-shape when the tension's off while tacking. Lead the mainsheet through it.
More expensive fix: there may be too much friction or drag in your stern and boom-end blocks, so the sheet don't pay out quickly enough when you ease it, result = belly.
Try the cheapo fix first.... ;-)
