I have a fairly heavy weather boat with a full keel, so I wouldn't exactly describe her as "tender." As a result I'm not a constant tweaker nor am I a set-and-forgetter. To windward it's usually haul 'em all in and play the wheel. Off the wind there's a fair amount of tweaking, particularly the jib and the main, somewhat less so the mizzen and the staysail.
