Handicaps

With the exception of V (Sunbeam) and M (Firebird) classes, all boats which race with FSC will be assigned a handicap in an attempt ensure that racing is fair. There are several handicapping or rating schemes used:

Handicaps at FSC in 2020

All boats listed here submitted a Race Entry Form and signed the insurance declaration for 2019. As the 2020 season progresses the table will be revised to reflect changes. The Working Boat handicaps may be changed to reflect potential performance.

Notes

    Working Boat handicaps are adjusted regularly. The last revision was August 29th, 2019.

    Some boats may sail in W and Q, E or U (though not in the same series).

    Alternate Ratings

    For Q, E and U classes, the first rating is their IRC rating, the second is a SWYTC. A few Q and U class boats do not have an IRC rating (marked as NC, No Certificate).

    E class

    After an absence of a few years, E class has re-appeared. As yet the split has not been agreed. Those marked Q/E are likely candidates.

    One-designs

    V class is a one-design and the rating is the same for all members of the fleet.

    M class is effectively a one design, since the only multihulls which compete are Firebirds and the class wished to be scored on a ‘first past the post’ basis. Should any other multihulls race, the class will revert to its Mocra handicap, shown here.

    The W class rating is a SWYTC. If an alternate rating is given, it is for ‘with spinnaker’ should that boat also wish to sail in another class.

    NA

    If a rating is marked NA if it is Not Available or Not Applicable.
