I too wonder about weight differences that are relatively small compared to the total (sailor, maybe wetsuit, rig & board). It would seem a couple of kg wouldn't be be noticeable. Although I don't have the tests to prove mentioned by Davide above, I would suspect that differences are noticed due to leverage (like in a mast). Therefore, the bigger the gear, the more noticeable. So based on this theory, if you added a kilogram weight around your waist, you probably won't notice. Add it to the end of your board or the top end of your mast and you'll notice a big difference.
