Here is some additional information:
Sail: Gaastra 6.0 Freetime (not 6.5)
Mast: Fiberspar 3200, 430 cm, IMCS 21, carbon content 30%
Extension: About 12 cm? (don't have access to the rig right now to check)
I am not on the harness or in the footstraps as of yet. I should add that in these good wind conditions I am just slogging along. It feels like the sail is half backwinded and half powered up.
Consulting with my instructor, he says that the downhaul is about right. He thinks that I may be getting too far upwind and that I should try heading offwind to get things going, then adjust course.
Thanks for the replies.
