New Class 3 Handicap

Dear Class 3 sailors,

As you will be aware Class 3 is effectively the “Local Handicap” (non IRC) class with handicaps based on published Portsmouth Yardstick (PY) figures.

Most of you have been sailing with white sails only (non-spinnaker) although the PYs were not adjusted for this. Subsequently Class 3 was joined by a boat who wished to fly a spinnaker. This is entirely within the BSC’s ethos to encourage as many entries and as many people to sail as possible. However, we recognise that the handicaps need to be adjusted to reflect “white sails” and try to ensure competitive racing.

After considerable thought and discussion we have decided that we will use an adjustment to the PY for white sails only. Our research shows that commonly adopted corrections are 4% or between 20 and 40 points added to the PY’s. We have decided to adopt 40 points for the timebeing.

Class 3 handicaps become: –

Red Magic Red Fox 200 1185 (no adjustment)
Bella Vela Beneteau 30.5 1080 + 40 = 1120
Live Wire Sonata LK 1058 + 40 = 1098
Randy Robber Robber 1009 + 40 = 1049
Elfin Elan 333 889 + 40 = 929
Spring Chicken MG Spring 25 1004 + 40 = 1044
Charisma Macwester Rowan 22 1350 + 40 = 1390

Note : Local Handicaps are subject to adjustment by the handicap officer.”

Best Regards
Alan Hanna (Handicap Officer)

BSC Commodore’s Cruise

Commodore’s Cruise Sunday 10th August
This Sunday is the Commodores Cruise to Fambridge. In the absence of our Commodore the Vice Commodore Richard Tucker will be leading the cruise. We plan to sail down to Fambridge, moore at the Floating pontoon (there is normally a charge for this) and go ashore to have lunch at the Ferry Boat pub. Then sail back with the ebb tide. It would be helpful if you could notify Richard via email richard@imolaproject.co.uk if you intend to come and require lunch at the pub so that we can advise them of numbers. The plan would be to leave at around 1045 from the BSC.

Please be aware that this event is weather dependent – there is a possibility that it may be windy and wet on Sunday. However at the time of writing this it is not confirmed and may well pass through before or after our planned event so we will be keeping a watchful eye on the weather situation.
