I had the opportunity to hear Robert Perry discuss some of these same issues. The gist of his opinion was that while none of these changes resulted in better boats per se, the cumulative research and what was learned from trying different things has resulted in better sailing boats today than in the past. More modern underbodies point better and are faster than where we started before the racing rules etc.
