Most modern sails are designed for an inhaul or strap round the mast. If you use the tack pin it will be like sailing with the cunningham on.

Hoist the sail to the black band- and only use the tack pin if fixing it does not put the luff under tension

Pulling the clew to the black band will cause a crease. Ease a bit unless its blowing hard
