Do you know how to access them?

Has anybody collected together weather stats so one can easily see how many days are light medium or windy sailing days?

Discussing the X1 with a few people, we seem to agree that at least in South England, inland waters perhaps 80% of the time the wind is light - although we probably remember the windier conditions more. So my real contention is that on inland waters is most sailing days are in light winds.  

What do you think? What percentage of sailing days (including those you don't even bother going out in) would you classify as light medium and heavy? Say where you are talking about - obviously places on the sea or with sea breezes would be windier.
