>Peter,

I guess if I was sure I wouldn't have posted the first article!. After
reading through this thread, I wonder...
Another way of looking at this question is "if a light sailor is fully
powered up on a 5.0 and the correct board, is he inherently slower than
a heavier, taller sailor fully powered up on a 6.7 and the correct
board. If so, how much?"
That would take my ego out of it entirely!
