Oasis Tandem Sailing Issue

Hi,

Was out in 15mph winds and noticed the yak wanted to head up wind even when the sailing rudder was full over the opposite way. Tried sheeting in and out and no discernible difference. I'm a very experienced sailor in big and small sailboats and this experience was annoying. The only way I could turn away from the wind was to pedal real fast for a few seconds. Is this a typical sailing characteristic for an Oasis or was I just pushing it too much in that high of a wind?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
