We have had a Club write in asking, "What should the portsmouth yardstick be for a Flying Fifteen, without a spinnaker...?"
The context of this is a fleet of 10-12 FFs racing on a very restricted size lake, as part of a handicap fleet.
The RYA Tech Officer has come back suggesting 1028 - so 5 points off the normal 1023 for Open Fleet FFs. I assume he would also say that we should add 5 points to each of our Silver and Classic unofficial yardsticks.
Does anyone out there race with a Club that might have some data or sound advice on this??
