Smaller boats are welcome, but...
You are exactly right. In the past the smaller boats were not able to keep up and the fleet became separated. Smaller boats are allowed to participate with prior approval from the rally organizers, primarily Steve Black. For example, my C&C 33 MkII (with her previous owner) participated in the Caribbean 1500 in 1996. But then, when racing I am competing against 44-foot boats with a PHRF rating of 132.
