This is the first I have heard of this. I’ll start with two questions:

1)What are the window areas on existing sails? I assume they are all close to the maximum.

2)Is there a problem with the current maximum size limit? I personally haven’t had an issue.

I do agree that the current minimum area of 100 sq. in. ,645 sq. cm is a safety issue and should be increased. Increase the minimum size to an area that doesn’t outlaw sails that are being currently used. Peter, your suggested range doesn’t fit any existing sails. Maybe something like 900/5806 minimum to 1200/7742 maximum would be better? 1500/9677 seems like too big of an increase to me.
