Do you have any tricks in your repertiore which prevent the mainsheet from getting caught under the rear corner of the Wayfarer in a gybe?
This can be caused simply by gybing with the mainsheet too far out. The long loop of slack mainsheet can hook itself around the rear corner of the deck. It should not be necessary to modify the boat to avoid it – just sheet in more before you gybe.
