Re: San Juan 26, love or hate...
Sloop, not sure. BUT, both here and up there, a number of yrs back we tok all the national ave numbers and reduced/increased by 10% to make things more on par due to the lower winds we have. That would make the 7.7 a 210 base here, if they have a smallish main and jib, no spin add in another 21 secs would not be too far off base.
My boats base goes from a 159 to BC-phrf at 192, I'm 189 down here.
Reality tho, the figures you show at least show how much slower the 26 is vs the other boats in the line.
There is also a history of Clark boat building online, IIRC it has been found on the SJ21 and 28 sites to see the how and why of the 26vs the 7.7 and other SJ's. I'll find it later if need be, but heading out the door to a day long race on Lk Washington, dinner then back out tomorrow and bring the boat home. Jed, we have one race at 10-12'ish tomorrow if you want to come out and crew. got 3 today if winds do what they are supposed too! 8:30 meet at meydenbauer yacht club. leaving dock at 9-9:15
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
