Not to get buried in an old argument, but Dave H. knows a lot about model gliding and probably doesn't need to read a book on the topic.

The point I think Dave was making is that lighter weight in F5B helps with acceleration and getting to course entry height quickly and with minimum energy use as well as with faster turns. Heavier planes will hold their energy through the course better. Its a trade off with a seemingly emerging consensus that ligher is better. Whether that will still be true in adverse weather is a matter for more than weathers (sheep) to consider.
