Good evening. I am interested in entering the Figawi in the spring with either a Pearson 26 and/or (there are a few of us wanting to go) a Bristol 24. While I know that the base rating for the Bristol 24 is way above the acceptable 210 to enter this race, the Pearson 26 is only 3 above the limit. Does anyone have any advice what I can do to lower the handicap to below 210 for either of these two boats?
I have pretty much ruled out the Bristol, but if there is a miracle solution that anyone knows about, I'm all ears.
