The Six Metre MYA National Class is a scaled down version of its full sized counterpart and offers a traditionally graceful appearance with steady performance and handling. Boats are typically about one metre on the waterline with long overhangs. The draught is restricted to around 230 mm (9 ins) with the displacement typically 12 kg (26 Ibs) and the sail area relatively large at about .7 square metres (1100 sq in). The class rules are ‘open’ allowing for design development and variety. They are maintained by the MYA in conjunction with the 6M Owner’s Association, which also handles the registration of the class.
