Would anyone care to share with me an official IRC handicap if they have been measured for one?
CRUISING AND CLASSIC BOATS
The rating of heavy cruisers and classic boats, with relatively low sail area and heavy boat weight, has been reviewed and some of these boats will now see more of a rating benefit.
I think the above revision to the IRC handicap system in 2019 has triggered something as I have been asked if I know I'd like to give an answer. This may also be linked to Cowes Week; there is a special class for classic boats - Twisters are eligible.
Many of the Classic Races do not require an IRC handicap. You simply need supply a few measurements of sails and hull. The best thing to do is ask.
I can help with data. That was the hardest thing for me to do.
I have two handicaps when racing - (well 3 - I'm no good at starting.) Both were a one page form. One is for the Channel Classics and a different one for the Cowes Classics. The Hamble Classics have a system...but I'm not sure what it is.
