Who was the fast boat in the race before applying our handicap?? Well, congratulations to Doug Bryant sailing solo in Phryxus at 693 sec/nm. We could all learn by watching Doug’s set on his sails . 
 
Astra (BSA) has the lowest prior handicap of 609 sec/nm and therefore set the bench mark. 
KEY: Corrected time (in Seconds per NM) is calculated =
 Elapsed Seconds per Mile - Prior Handicap + bench mark Benchmark. 
Next race handicap is calculated as the your average of best three races, 
most recent 12 months.  

The handicap system reward those who sail each month
WE hope to see you-all  next month.  Please call me if you see a mistake or would like to discuss the race.
