For what it’s worth, my view after many years of racing in Wayfarers is that the class is friendly on the water and on the whole law-abiding. Infringements can usually be sorted out by discussion after the race. Obviously protests happen and should be encouraged where appropriate but over the years there have been really very few of them. On the water scrutineering seems way over the top.

When (under pressure) I organised a special RYA judge to be in attendance for a Nationals (and we had to pay his expenses) there was nothing for him to do, poor chap. He spent his time posting meaningless changes to the racing instructions on the race notice board.

Keep it simple is my view.
