Old question about spinnakers and racing

I am buying a new Dehler 34 and will get into racing for the first time next season (I sail in New England). The boat is already rigged for an asymmetrical spinnaker.
My question is, and I''m sure this has been asked a million times, which is the best for racing, asymmetrical or symmetrical spinnakers. Also, should a boat be rigged to go both ways in general or is that just overkill and a waste of money. Thanks for any input you may have.
