At our club (upper Bristol Channel) we are using Byron. The handicap for my MG30 is 1060. However under PY I recall it was 1080. As I haven’t raced for a couple of years I’m not sure where I stand today. There is a move to perhaps go to club handicap system with us. Blessed if I know which is better or worse. All the best Paul Chapman.

Hope this helps Brian Log in to Reply Paul - Grampus June 21, 2010 at 7:16 pm That about sums it up for me too. A mate of mine has a Pioneer 9 which I also crew on at times and it is much the same story. But, we do have proper sea going yachts and not the skimming soap dishes we see so much of and have to contend with. Paul.
