When Ed's #529 and my boat are both set-up similarly and sailing in the same wind, they seem to have about the same speed and "point". I think sails from any of the accomplished sailmakers will serve you well when you get them tuned properly to the rig.

I haven't sailed my boat against a EC or US 12. I suspect it would be slower than an EC and faster than a US. In light wind last week (maybe 4knots) I had a bit of speed and point on a Newport 12. I suspect with just a little more breeze that would have changed in a hurry!!!
