Boats and Handicaps

For Cruisers, Belfast Lough Yachting Conference use RYA National Handicap for Cruisers (NHC) system.  Boats will start using their Base Numbers as listed n the RYA’s web site.  Handicaps will be revised after each regatta and will be part of a series of nine races.  Boats that do not turn up for a regatta will revert to their Base Number.


Finish times for all cruisers taking part in regattas are to be submitted to Steve Atkinson by midnight on the Monday after the regatta.  Steve will revise the handicaps according to the NHC sytem and they will be published here as soon as available.
