Autumn Series Improvement Ratings

posted in: Flying Fifteens Blog | 0

The Club Autumn Series finished on Sunday with some very close racing on the water.  Two of the boats managed to get a 1st and a 4th or 5th in the two races.  This did not change the overall series positions so first are John and Helen, second are Mervyn and George and third are Mike and Peter. The prizes will be presented at the club Christmas Dinner.

Roger has now managed to calculate the Personal Handicap ratings for the series.  So the Ridgeway Consulting Trophy goes to Alastair and Jeremy.

A few notes from Roger about this calculation: –

“In each race the winning boat’s time is given the scratch rating of 1.000. All other boats’ times are divided by the scratch boat’s time to establish their ratings for that race.

“The various boats’ ratings are averaged over the series and compared with their rating from the previous series. The helm from the boat with the best improvement is the series winner and is awarded the Ridgeway Consulting Trophy.”

See you on the water soon.
