Why not a removable/adjustable set of amas? If they are of sufficient angle, they wont create drag when running, and they will still allow some heel when reaching. Since they are adjustable, you can leave them at their widest setting, or retract them to reduce the amount of stability while still providing piece of mind to younger sailors. Come race day, simply remove a couple of clamps and you're class ready.
