"bent" mast-shroud tension as culprit

Mine did but its not the sail. It was the mast. The shrouds were asymmetrical. Spent Thurs. tuning rigging for straight mast. Problem gone.
Lay SB on her side and sight from top down to confirm you have a straight mast. Carr builds curve in luff and lists the amount on the sail head. Don't exceed that limit (when raking during a beat) that is built into his HT sail.
re beer-can race #2 Saturday...club swap-meet/beer-can race will overlap. We repositioned SBs for easy access during swap-meet hoping all 7 SBs show up (+2 top guns) If regular SB skippers turnout we could have 10... keep fingers crossed.
