FGSC HANDICAPS (2020 SEASON)

Fishers Green Sailing Club uses the RYA Portsmouth Yardstick Handicap System for club handicap races. “The handicap is derrived from data collected nationwide, but the published number may not suit the local conditions of individual clubs”. We make local adjustments using the exact same method but use our own race data for such adjustments as they more accurately reflect the prevailing conditions. In the case of development and restricted classes, new boats become superior but the old boats remain the same and a historic PY number may need to be used to provide fairer racing for diverse classes. In such cases we use the published numbers by the respective class associations and make local adjustments as we collect enough race data.

 

The following classes are commonly sailed as FGSC and the numbers below have been agreed by the Sailing Committee. If a class is not listed below it will initially use the number listed in the current RYA national list. In the event the class (or configuration) is not listed, it shall be assigned a number based on historic information if available, in agreement with the Sailing Committee.
