Hi

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.  

Thanks

Hi Peter/Anyone else

As a Twister racing novice (Flying Fifteen before this) I'm hoping to race in a classic/Spirit of tradition regatta class this autumn. Has anyone got advice as to what regulations I need to quote or can give to the organisers?

Thanks

Hi Hugh

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.

Hi Peter and everyone - with a new season about to begin, Edith Rose is signed up for Cowes Classic Week 5th - 9th July 2021. They use KLR handicaps and ours is: 0.786. All the Twisters that have a KLR handicap vary a little bit depending on sail plan and age of rig etc. The organiser will calculate it for you if you supply the data and a few images.  If you are thinking about CCW sign up soon (for the discount) and book a marina berth ASAP as space is potentially more limited this year.

 Regards, Marcus
