Tayana 37 performance

Ladies and gentlemen, I once again call on the collective wisdom of this forum.

I am interested in a discussion of the performance of a full keeled boat with forefoot cutaway and a cutter rig. Specifically, how well upwind does a Tayana 37 perform? Besides the fact that it has a wide shroud why does the full keel inhibit upwind pointing ability?

For those of you with experience sailing on a 1980's era Tayana 37 what do you think of its upwind performance? Speed?

Thanks in advance to all who respond!!
