Faster on Starboard than Port. Why?

I just started racing my C&C 34 and have discovered that it is faster by a half a knot on starboard tack. I've adjusted the stays (rod rigged) so the sail track up the mast is straight. I'm not sure how tight to make them, so I tightened them up reasonably tight.

What are things I should be looking for?
