Regatta Week 2018

Once again we are laying on a full programme both on and off the water. This page will give you all the details and ensure you don't miss anything. NB The Social Programme with a listing of all the events and how to book is shown below all the racing stuff!

The Racing

As in previous years, from Monday to Friday we will be running daily races for both Fast and Slow fleets with Class prizes for boats where we have a number competing, such as Lasers, 2000s, Toppers and Lymington River Scows.

We are also trying out something different this year. Alongside the normal competition based on the fixed handicap appropriate to your class of boat, we will be working out a "personal handicap" for each crew taking part. If you do well in a particular race, your handicap will be tougher in the next, and vice versa. Then at the end of the 5 days, in addition to our normal prizes, we will also reward the sailors who show most improvement in their personal handicaps over the week. Our plan is (where possible) to use as the "starting personal handicap" the value achieved by each helm at the end of Regatta Week last year - these values have been calculated from the 2017 results for both Fast and Slow fleets. If you are competing for the first time in Regatta Week, or are sailing a new type of boat, your starting handicap will be based on the average of the handicaps for other sailors in that type of boat.

If you want to download the charts showing where these "starting handicaps" came from down load them here: Fast Chart (main), Fast Fleet (faster boats), Slow Fleet. You can also download a Table with all the Fast and Slow fleets' starting personal handicaps here: Fast Fleet Table, Slow Fleet Table.

In Regatta Week we try to set courses that are a little different from those in our regular racing and races are often a bit longer. As turn outs are also higher we have additional safety boats rostered. Here's looking forward to sunny days with steady sea breezes!
