To get your stitches right up to the very point of the dart, where the line of stitches meets the edge of the fabric, I like to sew my darts backwards: from the tip to the wide part. This way, you can set your needle right at the edge and get to work. Otherwise, sew right on up to the edge, and decrease the stitch length to 0.5 mm with about 1/2" to go so that you can be as precise as possible.
