I think you mean a 90* shift......

John, you should check your rake. (Fore stay length). It looks to me that you do not have enough rake. (Clew is very high) Also looks like your leads on your geny need to be moved forward.

Off the top of my head a 2 spreader rig, the fore stay length should be about 37' 3" max luff
