Yes. There are lots of mathematic formulas. People go to school for years to learn those formulas. You might try here...

No offense intended, but seriously. Asking a bunch of strangers on a public internet forum is NOT the way to go about this sort of thing. To do this right, without wasting a lot of money on modifications that will only make your boat sail worse, you need to hire a qualified marine architect. That's going to cost a lot of money.

You would probably be better off to just sell the boat you have, and buy one that was designed and built for the sort of racing that you want to do.
