I've spent a lot of time helming 38 foot cruiser-racers and target boatspeed in powered up conditions was 6.7-6.8 knots. These are slightly quicker boats than a Sigma/36. So yes, I'd try more forestay tension and more pointing.

Just incase to follow up. Dried the boat out yesterday scrubbed her off. Put more tension on the caps, worked on using the runners she how high she'd go before the speed really fell off. Got some odd backstay settings from a book using a fair ammount of backastay in the light stuff. Anyway got a 3rd last night, the best results we've had round the cans at are club.

Cheers for the help.
