    Here is a fairly detailed proposal-it will be a canting keel yacht! (see the "Multihulls forum" for that proposal)


    Monohull & Multihull
    High-performance and close racing
    Light to strong wind range capability
    Ease of shipping & transportation
    22m max overall Length
    "green" engines legal

    Monohull
    1.0 x wind speed upwind performance
    1.4 x wind speed downwind performance
    Narrow displacement range
    Combination of bow and twin rudders allowed
    Bowsprit
    Unlimited gennaker area
    13 crew

    CBTF legal-never thought I'd see the day! But I don't think this rule goes far enough....Go with multies this time!

    Now this would get my interest:
