The angle of vanishing stability was included in the RYA yachtmaster syllabus after a 42' boat capsized in Biscay. The learning point here is about keeping weight low down (be aware of furling headsails & radar scanners etc), and being aware of the theoretical limitations of one's boat. I believe the AVS figure is now quoted for all new boats. The Contessa 32 remains one of the most stable boats - & was the smallest boat to complete the 1979 Fastnet.
