Well, I hope you all realize that it takes a fair amount of breeze to get those things rolling under sail... And, it damn well better be blowing in the general direction you want to go... (grin)

Sail Area/Dispacement ratios don't lie, and the real world displacement of such boats is usually grossly underestimated...
