Seems SO primitive after seeing the AC cats launched!

The RC44's are good boats, nice Class Rules, and they take off a bit in a breeze.
I vaguely recall reading about the construction, weight distribution, ....
The fellows like to race them.

AC34 could be in these boats; competitors / sailors help make the decisions.
RC44's are a valid alternative, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

It looks like nice days for racing around the buoys in Florida,
warm water, nice breeze in a Corsair Dash 750,
