I think your point on shelter covers it perfectly. If you’re on a south shore e.g. northern France with a southerly F8 you could have quite calm seas.

Equally in the Stockholm archipelago I’ve been out in F8 and it’s like sailing on a pond other than the reefs generally fairly comfortable.

Flip side I’ve been out in F3/4 where the seas have still had big swell that’s more unpleasant than all of the above…
