Sailing Profile of the Frigate

Here is the Sailing Profile of the Frigate. She is a fair deal bulkier than the lighter frigates, such as the Cerberus and Renommee, and her low turn rate, coupled with her difficulties sailing even 15 points from the wind make her a more challenging ship to sail than any of the smaller vessels with which a Captain may have become acquainted before her.
