Is there any reason for the capitalizations?--Vierzehn (talk) 16:02, 25 March 2008 (UTC) Yes, the class designations are capitalised as they are names, not common substantives.Francisco de Almeida (talk) 14:27, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

If that's the case, then the M should be capitalized in "15 Metre Class" and the like, too. It would, of course, be "15 m Class" (unit symbols are case-sensitive), but that has no effect on spelled-out unit names. Why aren't they capitalized? Gene Nygaard (talk) 15:46, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

If someone can write better about the outcome of WGC 2012 as the Open Class ships are concerned, please do. I think it is a remarkable development in the design... Szafranpl (talk) 17:02, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

After a bit of research and adding (as a result) of some notes (BTW, please preserve them somewhere, it was a bit of work to collect) I think the history section of Open Class needs rewrite. EB28/29 is I think an extreme design, but it took 1. and 3. in 2010 WGC, so the opinion "extreme does not work" is not so clear anymore. Main train of thought as of now I think needs to be preserved as it is interesting and insightful (extreme vs practical), but the whole thing has to be written from 2012 perspective, probably reporting previous stereotypes. All in all, this is fascinating. Szafranpl (talk) 13:07, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
