Cat yardsticks for regatta

Recommended Posts

At the Wallagoot Lake Boat Club, we have been using a mix of Koonawarra and YV yardsticks.
For example:
Hobie 14 93
Hobie 14 Turbo 88
Maricat Cat Rig 94
Maricat Cat Rig, Foam hull 92
Maricat Sloop Rig: 2up 94
Maricat Sloop Rig: Foam hull, 2up 92
Maricat Super Sloop:1up +/- trapeze 90
Maricat - Super Sloop + Foam hull 88
Nacra 14 square    85YV
Paper Tiger 92
Windrush Cat Rig: 1up 94.5YV
Windrush Sloop Rig: 2up    94
Windrush Sloop Rig: 1up    90.5YV
Windrush Super Sloop:1up+trapeze 87 YV
Weta (1-up) 91YV
Weta (2-up) 94YV

 

I was asked "why don't we just use YV, like all the other clubs? Aren't Koonawarra out of date now"?

Well because the latest VYC yardstick includes these:
Hobie 14 96.5
Hobie 14 Turbo 90.5
Maricat 4.3 Cat 96, +1 for GRP Hulls
Maricat 4.3 Sloop 91, +1 for GRP Hulls
Maricat 4.3 Super Sloop 89, +1 for GRP Hulls
Nacra 14 square    84.5
Paper Tiger 92.5
Windrush 4.3 Cat 94.5
Windrush Sloop Rig: 2up    94
Windrush Sloop Rig: 1up    90.5
Windrush Super Sloop:1up+trapeze 88
Weta 1up: 86

Why have Maricats gained 4 points over PTs? Did they win the Quiddich cup?
Who agrees that Nacra 14squares have gotten faster, and PTs slower?
Has anyone ever seen a Weta beat all other 14' cats around the course by several minutes?
Please advise us.
