In Topic: Why do big boats plane faster?

But a windsurf board is even smaller then a Laser and can overtake the 100',

so theres your answer, big boats are not necessarily faster, e.g. an 18 footer will plane past most yachts

Correct me if I'm wrong, but ISTR the major skiff clubs in Sydney used to do exactly that back in the old days. I've seen stories of the anarchic old days involving crewmen knocked unconscious in right of way 'negotiations' when there was no RRS69 to worry about.

Yes, but wedge driving that split was professionals, start/finish & prizemoney and sponsors signage not gelling with the IYRU rules of the era, this was not that different to the PRO & AM splits in athletics, golf, boxing, cycling tennis etc also common prior to the 70-80s.
But back to clubs defecting !!
