Autumn series

Sunday 13th October: a breezy, gusty day, with rain early on. Wind initially S, veering round to SW, with early gusts touching F7. The decision was made to use Toppers for safety, and this avoided capsizes, though it made for rather slow progress. Steve and Allan took a race each, and the two juniors made a good showing too, though the Feva mistook the correct course and was scored DNF. The afternoon pursuit race was abandoned, for lack of support.

Only one more week now for these series; on the 27th the clocks go back, and we start the Winter series, with just two races each Sunday: 12:00 and 14:00, both handicaps.

2019 Handicaps

Most of our handicap numbers are the same as the RYA's 2019 recommendations; we make an upward adjustment for a small number of classes (mainly those with PNs below 1000) for which the local conditions make the RYA figures unrealistic.

The full list can be seen HERE.
