Yacht Handicap

The club handicap is an "in-house" competition that normally takes place over three or four club nights over the summer. All members of the club are encouraged to take part.

There are two or three qualifier races staged, before the grand final. To take part in the final, you must have run in one of the qualifiers. If you don't have a qualifying time, then you are not able to win the trophy. Sorry.

Only paid up members of the club can win a trophy.

Qualifiers; We will have an idea of your run time and will  start the slower runners first. We then have a staggered start, working through until the quickest runners go last (there could be a gap of around twenty minutes between the first and last people to start). The idea is that, providing the handicap system has worked correctly, you should all finish fairly close together. Watches are allowed on this one, and the first one home will be declared the winner. 

The Grand Final; The last race of the series is the Final. All those that have taken part in a qualifying race are eligible to run, and once again, watches are allowed. It will be run in the same way as the  qualifiers, which means that the first person home, wins. There are prizes for the first, second and third athletes home. 

Some Rules.

  1. The organizers decision on handicap times is final. Don't bother to try and influence the decisions made because you are injured, not well or didn't sleep due to worry about the race, because it won't help, and he will probably just push you further down the start list. 
  2. Only paid up members eligible to win a trophy.
The course is about 3miles long, and it's a good idea to run it a few times before the qualifiers to get an idea of your time, but also because when we come to do the races, there will be no marshals out on the route. We would prefer not to have to send out search parties for lost runners. A map of the route will generally be available on the club notice board around one month before the first qualifier.
