As I outlined at the AGM, the Association has been considering moving from NHC to the CYCA (Clyde Yacht Club's Association) Handicap Scheme. At the last committee meeting the committee voted to approve this and consequently the 2018 Summer Series will be scored using CYCA, with NHC only used for WMV entries in the Marina Series.
Whilst it's called a handicap it's actually a rating, and each yacht will need a rating certificate. Dave and I are putting together a process to organise this as smoothly as we can so we'll be ready before the season starts. The RWYC and LDBC have indicated that they will also move their cruisers to the scheme.
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to call or email any one of the committee.
The winter solstice slipped by earlier today; the days will "get longer" and before we know it we'll be starting another summer series. To celebrate I've posted the 2018 Summer Series Calendar. You'll see a new format for the Inter-Club races; 4 stand alone 2-day regattas instead of 12 individual races. Each regatta will be 4 races (no discards) and will be hosted by a different club (RWYC then WMBRC then LDBC then WCA). There will also be an overall winner (12 of 16 races to count).
There's a new "Signature Challenge" 6 race series.
As Easter is so early we're running a fun race on April 1st - lots of starts, with racing around 1 mark only. Essentially it's starting practice with scoring.
II'll send out a longer update soon.
Merry Christmas all!
