Algol – It sounds like you may have the mast rake wrong which woud go a long way to explaining why you are also having such trouble when reefed. If the mast is hanging over the front of the boat you will have lee helm. When I got my boat it was completely wrong even though it had been raced. I set it up according to the tuning guide and its fine now. If I were you I’d make sure the rake is correct before going any further. Swiebertje is again giving you good advice and my first step would be to get a good tape measure and refer to the tuning guide. Just seen your last post I confirm there should be a decent gap Robert
