Default Sail body touching boom.

Kevin, do you pay any attention to your sail having contact with the opposite boom arm when you are reaching? I recently bought a new boom and when rigging sails according to the manufacturer's recommendations, the boom will come into contact with the sail when I'm fully powered up. When using the older, wider booms I learned that this meant I was not rigging the sail right. It definitely creates interference in the aerodynamics that drives the board. I know this is a moot point, but I was curious where micro-tuning can make or break a competitor at your level whether or not it is a concern.
