there is data on the website that dates back several years. It show that there is considerable variety in actual rigging practice within the group.

You may want to contact Joe Credit. In trying to figure out how to tune his
rig he asked to take measurements of a number of local boats and my guess is
he still has the list. I know there was one boat that had been successful
racing and started having problems. He gave them the tensions he had taken a
while back and they reset to the old tensions he had taken and started
getting better results in races. As far as I know he is still a member and
is in the handbook.
