Maybe you could try fitting boards and sails better. A baggy small sail on a wide board might be better upwind than a large sail on a needle, but still worse than the proper sail/board combination. Look at the fin selector [url]http://www.select-hydrofoils.com/en/selector/[url] for instance. I prefer to be well to a bit over- than underpowered to point upwind, but in offshore conditions you may think otherwise. Anyway as you learn tuning bigger sails you will gain confidence.
