Default RE: That pesky rear footstrap

Forgot to add that I feel it's hard to just hang in the sail. Often I have to move the sail back to avoid it beeing thrown forward, or put it more forward to get power/avoiding falling back or turn upwind. Shouldn't it be possible to just hang in the sail without moving it backward and forward much of the time? I am going to ask a advanced sailor to try my rig, but maybe you know the cause?

I feel this is making it a little harder to get in the rear straps, as I need to hang in the sail alone to lift the back feet. Will practice more on balancing the sail in afternoon, anyway.
