Concern was raised that the standard application of +6 sec/nm (for Inboard versions) may not be appropriate for all classes.
Discussion included the need to analyze this across all classes as deviating from this may cause a ripple effect.

Currently being reviewed!
We have asked Jim Teeters (US Sailing Offshore office) to analyze the effect of different keel configurations.
Our hope is to better assess the speed effect of different keels within versions of the same class.
