which catalina 27 for racing?

I currently own a Catalina 22 but am looking to purchase an older 27. My emphasis will be on racing here on Georgia''s Lake Lanier. Is a tall rig or standard the better option? I know the tall carries more sail but they seem to also be dragging inboard props. Should I even consider a 25 year old Atomic 4? Do the different phrf ratings balance things out anyway and make the extra sail area a moot point and not worth dragging around the old inboard? HELP!
