I am sure this has been discussed before but our club is talking about handicaps, the link below has been put on our club forum. Some thought please..............

Most large water clubs seem to use 1000 to 1010. If you go much lower than 1000 (Even at 1000 in the right conditions) the Fireball is a problem. They are faster than a Merlin in most conditions and in spite of what they may say are a bit of a bandit too!

Two races today at Brightingsea, four Merlins in fast handicap, Merlins 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th in both races, sailing on handicap 1008. Light winds and I guess if a Merlin is going to win the conditions today suited the Merlin. Great to see Jacko and Lorna joining our club for the summer. Talk in the club bar afterwards was of "who can cut the custard series"!?!?!
