There is a club handicap table in the year book.
What's the number of your boat?

Page 46 of the current handbook, older than 3429 and you start to get help in the form of current portsmouth number plus 10.

3331-3429 +10
3157-3330 +20
2833-3156 +30
2165-2832 +40
1616-2164 +50
895-1615 +60
500-894 +70

My local club was "slightly" suspect when I sugested there were a scale of PY's for older boats, but were then more than happy to oblige when I should them the year book with it's RYA backing,etc to these figures. The Morale is join the class association & back it, all the best Barry.

I've got 3429, are the figures both numbers inclusive or is 3428 the last boat to have +10.
Also if I cant find a crew soon it could be up for sale soon (rowsell NSM4) watch this space!
