Our rating was adjusted 5 points to 580, which seems more in line, although still awfully close to the J/109 at 578 with their much larger kites and longer waterline. What really seems out of whack now is Red Cloud, a Farr 36, rating 610. The YRA sheet shows them at 585 which seems much closer to reality and still tough.
I am not expecting miracles, but there were a couple of assumptions and at least one mistake (no prop) on our certificate that may impact the rating. He also told me that all of the other J/105s would be re-rated (I'm sure they will love us for that...) and that it was a waterline issue with us too. I'm mostly concerned that we are rating faster than a J/109 and I don't see how we could possibly be so much faster than the Farr 36 Red Cloud.
I'm just looking forward to finishing up the last few days of work and heading back to The Bay Area and getting this show on the road!
