We will run club and open events racing series in 2017, similar to previous years.
We have found that the reduced daylight limits the racing we can do early and late in the season. On a trial basis, Early and Late Series races will run on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.
We will adopt an automatic rolling handicap system for club (non-open) races, similar to the system used by Port Edgar Yacht Club. Boat handicaps will be adjusted after every race, using a formula. The aim is to find a fair handicap for each boat that adjusts for its suitability for local conditions, and incorporates a crew skill factor.

We will use a new race database to store the race results, this will run on the club computer and replace the Excel spreadsheets. This has some new features
