Although Frank Dye would be turning in his grave I also think that the EU have got it right by classifying the Wayfarer as Category C suitable for inshore waters and winds up to Force 6. Remember that Force 6 is described as a small boat’s gale.

When was the classification made and what are the implications? Obviously there are quite a few sailors who go ‘offshore’.
