Default Flying downwind

Hi I'm having lots of fun on my 139 GO - I can get in both straps in upto about 12 knots but after that I loose my nerve! I'm 5.0' and 135lbs and I sail 7.5 spectro in 12 knots then go down to a 6.5 spectro I feel when I'm really flying I'm going too much downwind - should I be closing the gap on the sail which I find quite hard to do or is there something else I can do to counteract this tendency. Thanks in advance
