For those who are unfamiliar with this, the calculation output (generated by Roger – who I believe likes beer) is attached and the following hopefully explains how it works..
– The BCR (‘back calculated rating’) is calculated by comparing how well a boat does compared with the winner in each race and averaging this over a series.
o As well as showing how boats compare with the winner, this obviously also shows how the winner compares with other boats
o Only boats that have completed 4 or more races are included
o All races are included (no discards)
– The PIR (‘personal improvement rating’) is calculated by comparing the BCR series on series – with the best improved winning the Ridgeway Trophy.
o Handicaps for individual boats (classic vs silver vs open) are not relevant as it is the series on series performance of a boat that matters
o A boat obviously needs to have a BCR in consecutive series to receive an improvement rating
o The winner of the Ridgeway Trophy can win it again for the next series by winning races by a bigger margin each time
This year’s FF Fairweather Series has just one event day to go ….. Howard and Richard are unable to race the final Sunday, so sharpen up your boat tune and see if you can beat them !! The current scores look like this
We have results! The Winter Series finished this weekend with the largest turnout of Flying Fifteens for some time – 17 boats participated, sometimes with different helms resulting in a total of 23 entries. The full results are on the club website but the top three are as follows:
Charles Apthorp & various
Hakuna Kutoa Katika
John Hanson & Helen Selden
Mervyn Wright & George Caspall
I know all this because Roger has worked his magic and calculated the personal improvement rating to determine that the winner of the Ridgeway Consulting Trophy this series
Ian Linder & James Linder
So congratulations to Charles and every one of his many crews and to Ian and James – and thanks to Roger for his continued good work on the results
