Yes you are right but that does not prove nothing except the boat is much better sailed than those bigger ones. None of those bigger boats that are behind is a performance cruiser or even a contemporary cruiser.

Anyway I did not say more modern, I said modern meaning contemporary and not any modern boat but a performance cruiser.

You (and others) said that a modern performance cruiser loaded would not be faster than an old design with full keel loaded. Here you just don't have any performance cruiser with the size of that old keeler and you just don't have the number of boats to take any relevant conclusion.

Let's wait for the big ARC where there are several old designs and also several performance cruisers with roughly the same size. That should take away any doubts.
