Sail Trim question

Sounds like you''ve tried all the right moves, (though moving the leads forward as the wind picks up is not generally seen as fast) and now it''s time to call Omar the Tentmaker over to see if he can''t recut the leech a little bit. Also, IMHO that if the headstay (sagging) was the problem, the flapping would be over the entire leech, not just a small part, as you described. Maybe Omar can confirm this for you.
