Windward performance

What are the factors that determine windward performance. Obviously a narrow sheeting angle for the headsail and the ability to flatten the main will help. My guess would be a narrow beam, a deep keel and low cabin and freeboard would also help but I''m sure there must be other factors? Wide stern? Narrow stern? masterhead? Fractional?
