Laser Stratos's performances
PY (Portsmouth Yardstick) rating iPortsmouth Yardstick is an empirical rating system allowing small sailboats (dinghies included), of different sizes and designs, to race each other fairly. Therefore, by comparing these values, we can have an indication of the relative speed of 2 boats.
D-PN rating iDPN is a variation of Portsmouth Yardstick used in the United States.
Upwind sail area to displacement iThe ratio sail area to displacement is obtained by dividing the sail area by the boat's displaced volume to the power two-thirds.
The ratio sail area to displacement can be used to compare the relative sail plan of different sailboats no matter what their size.
Upwind: under 18 the ratio indicates a cruise oriented sailboat with limited performances especially in light wind, while over 25 it indicates a fast sailboat.
365 ft²/T33.87 m²/T
Ballast ratio iThe Ballast ratio is an indicator of stability; it is obtained by dividing the boat's displacement by the mass of the ballast. Since the stability depends also of the hull shapes and the position of the center of gravity, only the boats with similar ballast arrangements and hull shapes should be compared.
The higher the ballast ratio is, the greater is the stability.
