Racing Results

Results updated to 11th November 2018

Autumn 1 Series completed. Please note Personal Handicaps have been updated - see below
A Spitfire was soaring and diving just beyond the dam as the sailors prepared for racing. After the customary silence was observed on this 100th Remembrance Sunday, the first race saw a blustery F5 gusting higher. I left before race two but the wind must have dropped as four laps were completed instead of six earlier on by the leaders.

Final winners for the series:

Handicap: Steve Fischer (Lsr)
Personal handicap: Richard Holmes (Lsr)
Laser: Steve Fischer
Enterprise: Hilgard Muller

Any last minute punters for the Laying up Supper at Aldenham School on Saturday November 17th? I think there are still places so see the recent Club email or contact Tony Gold or Rebecca Lonsdale via the ASC Contacts link.

Personal handicaps updated   
The new PH racing starting last year created four different winners for four series and brought many new faces to the podium, who will be rewarded at the Laying Up Supper. This is the aim - to show who is improving their racing no matter what their standard was to start with. James has just updated the handicaps which are now applied to Autumn 1. As we get more data, and assuming that people sail reasonably consistently each week, the movements in calculated numbers get smaller and the handicaps get more accurate.  However as certain conditions suit certain sailors better than others the consistency point will always be an issue unless we all sail a lot more!
