How about making it a tad more challenging, something like.
You have to race at least 200 NM, wind must be 20+ knots (in order to get the old shoes moving), and you must visit two ports or tidal creeks, all under sail (no engine at any point).
That would rid us of all the rating requirements, as the more extreme designs would fall for one of the criteria?
Edit: I know this would require participants to be gentlemen, but?
