SAIL SIZE VS SAILOR WEIGHT, REV 3/27 #2

Oops!

The fairly large response to recent "Big Sailor?" posting inspired  me to
try Sail Size versus Body Weight questionnaire again.  Response to my 3/26
& 3/27  postings were great and prompt yet another revision to use
long-recognized wind ranges (Beaufort Scale) and to recognize differences
in sail types.  I could also include board-type and fin-size, but am
afraid it might discourage responses (too complicated).  Feel free to add
data under comments.   Please post for all to see.  I'll post summaries of
area/weight ratios from time to time.  

WIND RANGE                                IDEAL SAIL SIZE, sq meter

                                 5 = few whitecaps
                                 6 = overall whitecaps
                                 7 = whitecaps & swells (small craft
