this file i've attached will help.

note, click the white arrow tool on the left on the toolbar, and then just experiment with the points.. you'll soon see how to get a clean curve like the one attached:)

in general, smoother and longer curves come from fewer points. Try just setting down two points with the line/path in between, then convert the endpoints so they have handles. That will probably get you what you want.
