Freedom 36' cat/ketch: FREEDOM 36 CAT KETCH sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

If you are seriously interested in racing you will want new sails which will probably cost around $5K for both.
As to electronics upgrades, all of the items you mentioned would be great to have. I'd add AIS to your list as well so you can more easily identify commercial ships.
Since fog is a likely event where you are a radar and integrated chart plotter might be highest on my list of important items to have on board now.

Congrats on taking the plunge!
