 PRIZES NUMBER PER CLASS

              PRIZES  WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE SKIPPERS MEETING  

                DEPENDENT UPON WHAT THE PRIZE COMMITTEE COMES UP WITH

 

USYRU PORTMOUTH YARDSTICK WILL BE USED FOR HANDICAP. THIS SYSTEM IS BASED ON A BOATS PAST PERFORMANCE. THEREFORE, HELPS TO PUT EACH BOAT ON AN EQUAL BASE.

BASIC FORMULA

                  CORRECTED TIME = ELAPSED TIME / HANDICAP X 100

 

                EXAMPLE

 

                   BOAT #1  ELAPSED TIME = 65.5 MINUTES  HANDICAP = 94.8

                   CORRECTED TIME = 65.5 / 94.8 X 100 = 69.09 MINUTES

                   BOAT #2  ELAPSED TIME = 67.2 MINUTES  HANDICAP = 98.6

                   CORRECTED TIME = 67.2 / 98.6 X 100 = 68.15 MINUTES

 

                   THEREFORE BOAT TWO WOULD BE THE WINNER DUE TO THE LOWER

                   CORRECTED TIME.
