Considering that the Capsize Screening Factor--or Ratio--(as a non-dimensional estimate of yacht's propensity to capsize) is the beam divided by the cube root of the yacht's displacement
measured in cubic feet of sea water
, the displacment to beam ratio would have to be pretty spectacular. Our beam, at about 13', and displacement
, at about 23,000 lbs at "half load" yields a Capsize Screening Factor of about 1.81. To get that down to 1.0, our half load displacement would have to be about 137,000#!! For most racing
the break point is 2.0 or less, or, in our case, about 17136#.
