The various racing associations maintain lists of base ratings that are used to develop the rating that will apply to a particular vessel that applies for a rating certificate. Many clubs require a valid certificate for a boat to race. Our's does not.

The Yacht Racing Association of Long Island Sound's base ratings can be found at: http://www.yralis.org/100517-base-rating.pdf

The rating appears to range from about
168 to 198, depending on the area, so
the base rating is likely around 180.

thanks guys.
Now I only have to figure out what that means when sailing against a boat with a 245 handicap.

Means that if you are 180 and he is 245, you have to give him 65 seconds handicap for each nautical mile.

And if he's a heavy, under-canvassed cruiser, you probably will sail closer to your handicap than will he. If he's a small, relatively light keel boat, he'll probably kick your butt in light air.

you're right

Joel
First thank you for your YC rating list very handy.
You are probably right he'll beat me, but I don't like to sail in light winds >12 mph so I'm not worried and I know I'll beat your 4 year younger nice Pearson 323.http://www.sailnet.com/forums/images...es/laugher.gif
Almost got one of those but they hold their value to good (i.e. too expensive for me)http://www.sailnet.com/forums/images/smilies/tongue.gif
Again thanks I thought it was seconds over the finish line, but now that i know it is seconds per mile I'll be right in the middle.
