High Performance Sailing: Is the Future in One Design or Handicap Racing?  
Thursday, January 19- 5:00 – 6:00 pm

High performance sailing is at a crossroads: some of the most popular one-designs raced in the last decade are getting a little long in the tooth and have a chance for being upstaged by some exciting new designs just entering the scene. These range from MC38’s, to Farr 400’s, to GP42’s and up to TP52’s, all of which are racing here in Key West this week. Yet this small but dedicated market for new designs does not yet have the critical mass needed for widespread one-design or box rule competition, and may not for some time given current economic realities. Existing handicap systems can’t easily handle the high-performance boats, so could a new system like HPR be the answer, or is one-design racing the only way forward? Join our panelists to explore this topic and the future of high-performance sailing. All participants will receive a complementary copy of the latest issue of Seahorse Magazine. Moderator: Dobbs Davis, USA Editor, Seahorse magazine
Dee Smith – Farr 400 Class
Rob Weiland – TP52 Class
Barry Carroll – Summit Marine
Wolfgang Schaefer – Farr 40 Class
Steve Benjamin – High-Performance Rule
Marty Kullman – Quantum Sails/McConaghy 38
