Hi All, I’m looking at a Whiting 40 as a liveaboard with the intention of getting it prepped for a Cat 1 to take it offshore in a few years. The one I’m looking at has been very well looked after and is a nice size for within my budget. I’m just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these yachts and what I might need to look out for? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

It's always interesting to see how experienced offshore sailors perceive the benefits or lack thereof in the racing regs with respect to safety. I've attached a pdf with some thoughts from Evans Starzinger on the ORC Cat 1 racing rules from a few years ago that I found interesting. Evans Starzinger - Thoughts on Cat 1.pdf
