Re: Friendly race...need help (new sailor)

The difference in the ratings is seconds per mile. So you could calculate how far the "race" is going to be and figure your start times like that. So with the numbers I would use as the ratings chair at my club, the Grampian is 228 , the Tanzer is 216, and the CS is 156. The Grampian would start first, then the Tanzer 12 seconds later, then the CS a full minute after the Tanzer. This is very simplistic and seeing as this is just a run what ya brung, bragging rights race, it should work for you. These numbers are for a one mile run though. If it is longer, then you would need to multiply the values by the miles.
