looks like 1.5mm for the boat and 2mm to race it. I know where a beautiful 47 Apache hull is for 40k. In Dubai for the class 1 WC races they were testing the air lingus sailboat team , I heard 12mm us budget for the test season.

I need to get a ride on one of those things in rough seas. ......without the dangerzone music

That was some insane blowboating though.
what happens when the wind dies...I willadmit, the guys and gals that race in the americas cup work their butt off and really rock through some weather..but I just dont feel that you're comparing apples to apples... just my .02 though

That sailing looks awesome! If I could actually afford one of those boats, I might actually get back into sailing!

I had a Hobie 18 with the magnum wings, when there was a blow that boat was a blast...some of the best times I've ever had on the water no doubt.
