Insails is on a distinguished road
another difference is in the keel..most (not all) blue water cruisers have a full keel and a narrower beam..Coastal cruisers normally have a wider beam and a fin keel or shoal draft with retractable centerboard...Most racers have more waterline not quite as rounded and a fin keel..
