Are the new 2016 handicap numbers published anywhere? So we can look and compare to “reality” 🙂

I think that if you try to compare the numbers the ‘system’ comes up with with reality then you’ll just end up baffled.

The numbers have been given to Jo who is doing a piece in the next Buzz newsletter!
They are also in the race box on the wall!
The system is based on the last 10 years returns to the RYA that is tempered with a bit of common sense – funnily enough you can plot a graph with them all on that shows that faster boats tend to do a lot better than py, and slow worse that produces a linear (ish) climb to give us a starting point for any classes we have no data for. However like any handicap system there is no good answer!
