Opening comment[edit]

I moved this page because the official term is One-Design, not One-design. Whoever initially created the page did not type it in correctly. AdmiralKit 08:57, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Merge Spec racing into One-Design[edit]

Spec racing can be merged here, into its section, since it is a short article, and the "summary" in this article is horrible.

This was first suggested in a WP:RM discussion at Talk:Spec racing.

The "Sailing" section, third to last paragraph, cites the Puddle Duck Racer as a one-design class. As may be confirmed on the website http://www.pdracer.com/ in the "Class Rules" section, PDR hulls are constrained for the lowest 10", but above the waterline hull shape is much less constrained, and rig (number, types, and area of sails) and foils (number, types, shapes (within a maximum thickness of 1.5 inches), and sizes of centerboards and rudders) are not constrained. Although there are plenty of good one-design small sailboat classes to cite (Sunfish, Fireball, Force 5, etc.) I think the Puddle Duck Racer is more of a "Development" class and should be classed either as a "Box rule" (preferably) or "Handicap" class of sailboat. I recommend replacement of the phrase (and link) Puddle Duck Racer with a similar phrase (and link) Sunfish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunfish_(sailboat) or similar small sailboat class which better typifies the one-design concept.

Given that, I agree! - Ahunt (talk) 01:52, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
The current One-Design article would have to be substantially re-written, and indeed renamed, for this to be a good idea. While there is a commonality of purpose between the two concepts the current One-Design article is very yachting-centric and has a name which refers specifically to yacht racing. What do you have in mind by way of a merger? --Falcadore (talk) 16:31, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
