Tempest is on a distinguished road
Lancelot, Perry had commented that the Tayana was a difficult boat to balance.. citing the mast being pretty far aft and the rake...usually the complaint was weather helm..
His solution was to suggest taking the rake out of the mast....How does that match up to your experience?

Have you tried staysail..and no yankee?
