More outhaul, more downhaul or add a cam spacer to the camber that keeps popping out.

If that doesnt help: Which of the cambers is it and how many cambers are there? Which sail is it? Do you use the recommended mast?

Good luck smiling smiley

more outhaul will pull the cam away from the mast making it easier to pop out, so it wouldnt help at all, try more batten tension if you see any wrinkles at all along that batten pocket.

They can pop out as a result of to little outhaul or too little downhaul. I prefer my racesails with minimum outhaul, and sometimes the cambers pop out because of that.

you need to put more downhaul on your sail then, race sails take almost neutral outhaul in my experiance...
