Could it be that yours sails are incorrectly balanced, too much foresail and she will veer windward, too much main sail and she will veer leeward. I had this problem earlier in, this, my first season.

You should try to set the sails so that she steers straight without needing to touch the helm. Try googling balancing sails

If your rudder is offset this will cause problem when under power, or might in fact improve weather helm, but I can only see that being the case at certain speed as the amount of wash will vary and hence the amount of offset would need to vary to account for that.
