Replying to:Modified RL24 CBH Rating
I am in charge of handicapping for our mixed fleet of Division 3 boats which include an Austral 24, Noelex 25 and a recently modified RL24. For our Championship series through the year, we have been using current CBH for the trailer sailers in the fleet which has worked well. The problem is the RL24 has been modified by adding an asymmetrical (masthead) spinnaker. I am looking for some guidance as to how we should adjust the current CBH of .725 to allow for this. Does anyone have any experience of this situation and be able to suggest what figure we should use? We have tried to link the handicaps to CBH wherever possible but feel that some adjustment should be made to be fair to the other boats in the fleet. Thanks. I should have mentioned that this is only to come up with a reasonable figure to use in our series. It is not for a State Trailerable Yacht Championship or anything like that, so it would be very unofficial. We sail in Mangles Bay off Rockingham about 14 NM south of Fremantle.
