Tartan 31 Trim Tricks

Anyone with a Tartan 31 or a Tartan in general have any good tips or tricks with upwind trim? I have a 135% genoa and a full sized main. The sails are in good shape and I have been keeping up with growth on the bottom, but the boat just isn't pointing as well as I feel it should. I have been doing all the normal upwind trim from the manuals, but just wanted to see if anyone had any unique tips from Tartan specific boats.
