Current Time Correction Factors (TCFs)

2016/2017 season – handicapping is now completed using a performance based system – this is based on the World Sailing International Empirical Handicap Scheme for Yachts. The empirical handicap scheme is intended to permit displacement keel boats of varying designs to race against each other. The relative performance of each boat – their handicap – is determined from the times it took each boat to complete the race. Adjustments are made after each race although these are weighted to reduce the impact of extreme performance differences. More details on how this works are available in the document below.
