So...I'm wrong, and I forgot how dreadful the Tempest rudder really was.  As well as the keels on both of the Soling and Tempest.  Vortex factories, all of them.

all keels are vortex factories. hahahaha

The way to tell Etchells apart from Soling is twofold:

Etchells has a cuddy. Soling not.
Etchells has a horn rudder--soling has spade. Also while keels are very similar, the etchells rudder+horn planform has a higher taper ratio.
3 feet longer = etchells but hard to see in photos.
Also remember the less common Yingling but that is significantly shorter.
