Guest AlexB Posted April 14, 2005 Report Share Posted April 14, 2005 I was wondering if someone could enlighten me a little on how the yardsticks are calculated. I have a fair idea, but it seems to me the system is flawed. looking at the yardsticks of some popular classes and then comparing these with club results, it appears some of the ratings are all but unattainable for the average sailor. I suspect this is because of class jumping. eg several world champions compete in several classes. Does this push the rating down? Take a cobra or a mosquito, you can reasonably aspire to achieving the yardstick, where as the Taipans, A class, F18 etc, it looks like the average guy will struggle to achieve the handicap.
