Yes that is why boats used for racing and cruising or crewed racing and also solo racing has to have a compromise regarding chines while the ones only for top crewed racing in regatta style (upwind and downwind) don't need any compromise regarding their use: They allow to go faster or not, independently of making sailing easier or not.
