Since this request from EU meeting is without details I would think the biggest issue is the blind spot created with the rigs bent out and sails low on mast. The forward visibility for skipper is very obstructed down low and in way of tack area of sail. I have attached PDF diagram demonstrating a window area of aprox. 1325in^2 or 8555 CM^2. I also have a added that window area reach within a minimum of 20 cm from luff of sail and must be located inside a min 40 cm radius of tack I would think , (not knowing the limitations of window materials) that a maximum size should be as suggested min 1200 in^2 Max 1500 in^2 this could be an issue on the larger size window proposal 9.25.20
