Single Digit Adjustments for Sail Sizes

E-mail Print PDF

For the 2015 Racing Season.

Central Council has approved instituting single digit adjustments for sails sizes.

This will have the affect that small differences in sail sizes between two boats will see a smaller difference.

Eg: J 30 with spinnaker of 181.3% gets -3 where 179.6 gets 0. A nominal 1.7 % smaller.

For details, please click on "Read More" below.

NEW: February 28, 2015 - Changes to the Mainsail maximum has been made.

Symmetrical Spinnaker Foot

E-mail Print PDF

Now a required measurement!

In conjunction with the change to the way we calculate the Spinnaker size and adjustments, we will now require that all Symmetrical Spinnakers include the "foot" measurement.

We have included a spot in our Application form (new version is now available) and the Handicappers Worksheet to report this.

Certificates that currently include a Symmetrical Spinnaker will have the foot listed equal to the reported "Max Girth".

We suggest that owners measure and report the "actual" foot measurement as in most cases it will be smaller than the Max Girth and "may" results in a smaller calculated spinnaker size, which could affect your 2014 Handicap Certificate.

Central Council VP NFS Delta review process

E-mail Print PDF

I just wanted to let you know what progress has been made so far by your Central Council members with regards to the NFS Delta review process.

The Database!!
We currently have 1410 Boat Classes in our database all with a Flying Sails and Non Flying Sails handicaps that have varying deltas. With the adoption of the VP NFS handicap delta "all but" 78 classes were identified as having a delta that does not match the recommended VP NFS Delta and that further scrutiny was going to be needed.

Valid Lists

E-mail Print PDF

June 16th (around 12:00 pm) to June 17th (8:00 am)

If you attempted to look up certificates in our Valid Lists or Certificate Queries and the information was not being found, we are aware of the problem.

This has now been corrected and all data should now be there again.

We are sorry for any problems this may have caused.
