Righting Moments for Rivals

Righting moments at 30 degrees heel
Posted: 19 Sep 2012 - By: Simon Harrison
In trying to understand the rationale for the rigging wire sizes for my R32 I wished to know the righting moment. Selden made their information available to me at the boat show and I took the opportunity to note the righting moments for other Rivals which were given to me as follows in the standard format at 30 degrees heel in Newton metres (8.91 N = 1kg force):
       R32   22,467 3419,400 34 listed, is this correct?
36 26,000
Does anyone know if these are the generally accepted figures?
