I think I may do some racing!!!

Ok...I have a pretty old boat...but she's in great conniption and we have these in harbor races here weekly...I'm thinking of getting in on the fun. I have been out and scoped the competition and there are some full on 40+ ft ocean racers with carbon sails and there are some old and slow cruising boats. I figure I'd like to be somewhere in between...There is no spinnakers in this so gear shouldn't be too bad...any ideas on how to fit the boat for something like this? What should I look to get to improve her for racing? In harbor wind is usually under 10 knots...
