Race Results and Handicaps

BBBC uses a progressive handicap system; World Sailing Empirical Handicap Scheme for Yachts

The life blood of empirical handicap racing is the adjustment of handicaps after racing. Without this race results and the scheme will soon become meaningless. This system allows boat of varying designs to race against each other and after racing determine, by calculation, the race results by excluding the performance differences of the boats themselves. Ideally the band of corrected times should continue to narrow as handicaps are adjust.
