There really is no such thing. The closest thing is the PHRF ratings which are assigned to boats that have been raced. These are gathered on a regional basis. They are not consistent from region to region because the average prevailing winds vary from area to area. So a boat with good light air performance might have a higher rating on the Chesapeake relative to a boat with good heavy air performance than the same boat might have in San Fransico

You can look at this site. As Jeff said it varies a bit by locale but this is a good genreal guide and they list a LOT of boats. Even those that are not typical racers.
It is seconds per mile handicap so a boat that rates 30 secs higher should take about that much longer to sail one mile.
