DOLPHYN DIARY NO:  208 – 23rd May 2017
Read your Dolphyn Carefully for all the Sailing & Club events on the Calendar.

Wednesday: Race 4 of the DHL Twilight series of 5 races start time 17:45. Forecast: light northerly, with the possibility of some rain (YES,YES,YES!!!!). Flat water – should be good if there is enough wind, particularly for the smaller, lighter boats. Not quite Miura weather – again!

Sunday:  Medium Distance race  – start 11:30. Forecast: (very) light southerly. Sounds a bit like a repeat of last week-end!!

The ORC (Offshore Racing Congress) measurement course at RCYC over the past weekend was certainly very interesting and informative. Although designed, primarily, for producing handicap ratings for out and out racers, there is also provision in the system for a “detuned” rating (with simpler measurement requirements) known as ORC Club, which would seem to have relevance for the ordinary “recreational racer”. One of the major attractions of ORC is the provision for an optional “triple number” rating – in effect, different ratings for light, medium and heavy winds. This could be most useful for our particular mix of boats. I will arrange a presentation on the subject – hopefully next week. As a special incentive, ORC has agreed to provide ratings free of charge up until the end of June of this year – just around the corner!
