How about
* the Grunau at 13.57 meters (OK shave 0.07 meters off if you must) or
* the Ka1 and Ka3 each at 10 meters or
* the Hütter 17 at 9.69 meters or
if you want to do have a helper in the back seat downloading the latest
info while you fly,
* the Schweizer SGU 2-22 at 13.11 meters.

It is interesting to note that the Grunau Baby was made in more numbers
than the total of all the gliders in the list below.

How about calling it the Maxi class?

If you regard this as a glider, I could add a couple of motorgliders,
some of them not self-launching:

Messerschmitt Me-163
Bell X-1
Bell X-2
Douglas D-558 II
North American X-15
....

I see that Region 10 in Texas still has room for more entries. I was
wondering if there would be interest from those who own a short wing
gliders in flying in Texas in August. The weather should be very
good. It would be easy to score those under 13.5 meters as a sub
group in the sports class.
