Jeesh, and people wonder why racing is in decline. All I want to do is a few beer can races and participate in some 70-120 mile races and I don't want to spend a fortune to do it.
I guess I'll include the asym in the application and take what I get. I don't expect to be at the front of the pack, and may not get in to the club races anyway, but I really want to take on the challenge of the longer overnight races just for the experience.
Go with the asym, penatly should be a -3, might even be "free" if you already have a large sym. Expect a ratings hit of -6 to -12 depending on your rig compared to "white sails only"
