Cat yardsticks

Recommended Posts

Appreciate that this is constantly flogged to death but I was intrigued by the results of the Speers Point Anzac Regatta.

DON'T get me wrong - I'm not complaining about what I was given but I'm just wondering what the 'normal' setup is.

SPASC very kindly put up the results which include the yardsticks used here: http://www.sailingspeerspoint.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/ANZAC-Day-Regatta-2016-Results.htm

The only yardsticks that appear to be in use these days are the VYC ones.  They seems to have several here: http://www.foxsportspulse.com/assoc_page.cgi?c=1-10099-0-0-0&sID=312960 but the one that seems to be current is this one http://www.foxsportspulse.com/get_file.cgi?id=35631482 which is  "YV Cat Yard Stick 2015/16 **UPDATED 19 OCT 2015** "

I notice there are some variations in the Div 2 group and didn't look any further.

What is the protocol - should we ask before we join a race (not relevant for Speers, joining is a given as far as I'm concerned) or just suck up whatever is provided?

Division 1 is well off the pace too, looks like they are last seasons yardsticks and have not been updated.  been to a few regatta's  where the people running the show didn't have much of an idea about yardsticks. I would send them an email with a link to the current vyc with a short note to say something about them being updated.  not much you can do now but it would be nice going forward to be using the correct vyc's
