Foxie's Cat Fight Minutiae
      #1735762 - 06/17/17 08:43 PM (70.177.22.163)

The Cat Fight appiles a few minutes penalty for flying a spinaker. Is it minutes per race or overall for both races?

Glenn,

It is 3 minutes for the first race and 6 minutes for the second race, so 9 minutes total handicap for a spinnaker.

The handicap is added to your time if you indicate you have a spinnaker on your boat even if you don't fly it as we found out the hard way in 2010. In other words, you need to determine if you are going to fly your spinnaker before you enter the race.

Thanks! Working on a spreadsheet to help LWEYC get the results easier and avoid any confusion. Once the boat numbers, names, classes and handicaps are entered the sheet is locked. All the committee has to do is enter the boat numbers as they cross the finish line and the sheet logs the time for that boat. After the finish a pivot table shows the finish order for each class, race and overall.

If I can get them to use it it might prevent some of the past confusion.

Last year they only charged two minutes per race. Not my favorite decision.

The method of placing markers was a worse one....
