Hi Paul. I get what you are saying. It maybe just a function of the design and I should stop fretting about it. Interestingly my previous boat was a Laurent Giles Atlantic 40. A beautiful boat that took me on an Atlantic Circuit. The keel design was similar to my current boat. Guess what, it didn’t win any prizes for pointing either.

I will probably go with a change to a genoa if only to make sail handling easier. I’m not getting any younger. Thanks for your help.
