I'm not surprised that VdS developed the design - the later versions look like an enlarged Splinter. The original design has a keel hung rudder which was later replaced with a skeg hung job, unusual as VdS always seemed to prefer a spade rudder. Certainly with the later rudder she should have good handling, though I assume the earlier version would be slower to respond to the helm due to the shorter lever arm. Good long fin keel for directional stability and not too deep a draught.
