Just out of curiosity, what weight are most of you sailing at? I'm currently at 175lbs (down from 219 last year), and sail at the mouth of the CHesapeake Bay. Conditions vary from no wind to last weekends 18-20, when I wish I'd had the extra weight back. I figure that 165-175 is about where my boat will perform the best. By the way, my boat, rigged as a sloop weighs in about 195 lbs.
