Most boats should have just a touch of weather helm, which is good, and helps the steering be more responsive, helps the boat point a bit better, and helps generate a bit of underwater lift to windward. The worst thing to have is lee helm, where the rudder helps stall the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
