Seven in same division and they can ask for their own scoring within that Div or their own stand alone one

Personally I don't care if the 1020's get their own scoring or not.... BUT I hope we stay within the division for more competitive boat on boat racing with some other designs

All good, Piedy’s want their own division, Y88’s are still getting organised 

If any other group want to get together we can do similar 

As Cam said, best race with others for the competition, but no drama to score any class or group over the series if there’s interest

Good question for the briefing 

Course Sheets will be up soon if not already but here’s a sneak peak

We are having a meeting tonight so will identify these issues then contact entries over the next few days

Plus if you think your in the wrong division or just want to change for any reason, contact Neil or email racing@ssanz.co.nz 

The system is automated and generates your entry on the data you fill in, we can and do edit all entries as required, however it’s easier to do this once we get most entered

There appear to be a few rogue entries in Evolution Sails 2 division.
NOR states handicap should be less than 0.750.
But boats like Prowler, Omega, Bullistic, Favourite and others are well over 0.850!

 

I think the horse has already bolted after they accepted entries for boats well over .750 last year... ie Rouge, Boogie Flash, Favourite and Zealous.

My suspicion is SSANZ will split the Evolution Sails Division 2 in half trying to have boats most similar in performance in each half.

It's interesting how the shortest course option for most boats is the most popular....

Decision just been made, it’s an open division so won’t be split, if you want to change let us know as per above

Next year we may have under 12.5m short course and over 11.5m medium course as this seems clearly to be what’s wanted, but it’s too late to change now that people have entered.

Being over popular is a problem that we just need to suffer I guess

The other reason boats may be entering this division is because no PHRF is required.

So to prevent this division becoming overloaded, SSANZ could either:
 a) require PHRFs for all divisions
 b) allow boats in longer divisions to use previous/expired PHRFs.

Think the Evolution div 1 and 2 wording actually refers back when there was separate 'light' and 'heavy' small boat and wording never got changed when numbers caused the two divisions to merge.

From memory, Open came in because of so many boats feeling the need to have a general handicap below 0.75 and the conclusion was it's easiest just to have a separate open division with no limit.

I see there’s a few PHRF applications in with YNZ but these boats haven’t entered yet.

Enter now as YNZ have promised to get all these processed by Thursday, you don’t need your cert at time of entry.

If you still wish to apply do it today and Mark will work overtime I’m sure, but tomorrow will be cutting it fine

Using previous/expired PHRF's is definitely not an option! PHRF's are only relevant to each other for a given year. There was a time a few years back YNZ reset/recalibrated basically all PHRF's so numbers prior to this date with have zero relevance

Jon’s right.  As part of the PHRF committee we have a system in place this week to quickly review and process the applications that are coming through, under the watchful eye of Mark.  So don’t let that stop you entering the triple series today (Wednesday).  Looks like a great fleet for Saturday already.
