Re: Full Keel
Most race courses are windward leeward so the ratings tell you how well a given boat does on a straight up wind and back down course.
Also if you put better/bigger sails on a boat like the 365 it would perform better in lighter air. Large roach main, mizzen and dedicated light air sails drifter, mizzen stay sail, spinnakers.
