    yardstick talk.... again

    Even if you follow KCC yardstick, they have H16 @ 82.5, N430 87.5, Windy 86.5. Add to that the penalty of spinnaker.makes windy 84 (3% rounded up), or 84.5 (2% rounded down). And you probably should give most hobies a run for their money, its just that we have a few really good ones at the club. btw you sailing on the weekend?

    YV has the 430 at 87.5 and the windie at 87. They also mention somewhere that adding a spinnaker should reduce your handicap by 3%, which would make yours around 84.5. (They also deduct 1 for squaretop windies, but we'll ignore that for now). We'll see if I ever get to finish a race...

    At this point there is talk of 30 odd boats, not sure how many of them in the open cat class. But if it is well supported there could b a few more open cat events next year

    Are Compasses Class Legal?

    Good point, what about the bethwaite trap system, that would also be illegal unless supplied by Nacra?

    Are Compasses Class Legal?

    I might have to put an order in for a "writing" line.... But seriously, are speedpucks or prostarts legal?

    cat righting

    I actually bought one on ebay, think it was made by hobiemills in US, works ok, but leaks a bit, so you have to be quick. also made a bit of a pully system where i hook it on the righting rope, and pull it up, then lean into it with my shoulder.
