Hi Nick
I understand you might have past Portsmouth Yardstick
numbers. If so please help me. I sail an old 420 with
the mast in the forward position (like a mirror) for the
solo helm.
Consequently I have no jib, spin or traipse. I mix with
the main race fleet at our club but get handicapped into
the latter end of the field. To make things worse last
Sunday there were a full blown 420 (sailing on the
same PYS) that left me for dead and to my amazement
only finished in the top half of the fleet. For my own
satisfaction I would love to know the handicap from
when they were raced solo, they were honest! Maybe I
can convince the committee to use it given proof.
Of course I could just think I'm a better sailor than I am
but I would like to know.


Richard. Sutton Bingham SC. Somerset.
