What does size have to do with sailing?

Ok well by "size" do you mean a persons size? a boat size or what? In racing peoples body weight is a very significant factor with Olympic sailors shedding as much weight as possible before an event. For instance - A top racing crew weight in a 420 class dinghy should weigh about 120kg to 130kg. Also a boats length has an effect on the speed of the boat. If you put a 50hp engine on a little tender then itsll go X speed. If you replace it with a 100hp engine it will still go X speed. This has something to do with the "waterline length" of the boat.
