Agreed, and perhaps those owning a $10K - $20K debt free raceboat are more willing to push the envelope when it is blowing in the 20s.

What is fascinating about these results is that a classic J/24, a good all around racer first designed and built in Rod Johnstone's garage some 40 years ago, in the days before computer design and high tech materials, can still go out and stomp $200-300K boats, boat-to-boat.
