No he doesn't, the C&C24 doesn't have one (although many people retrofitted them). It uses snatchblocks attached to the perforated toerail.

Yeah, and I assume it's the standard fin keel, not the "reaching keel" that some of the c&c's have?
There is a great tutorial here somewhere on sailnet on pointing higher. Also get the book from North called "sail trim" it is excellent and covers all the bases for getting the boat to point well. Nothing more frustrating on the race course than getting passed by a boat going higher and faster that's for sure...

Don't you have a track and moveable block for the jib sheet to run through? A photo of your set up would help.

It's probably the toerail/snatchblock arrangement that's causing it, you can't sheet the genoa in enough with it.
How far is the genoa from the spreaders when sheeting in as tight as you can?

new jib and main...I wonder if the position of the cars is important

What kind of keel do you have? I've got a Catalina with a wing and I understand that the fin keel will make it point better.
