Dart 18 takes 1st place and Sprint 15 takes 5th place in the medium start at the Grafham Grand Prix.......

So how come Andy Rice reports that a Fireball won on course B when David Wright clearly won in his Dart 18 single handed? Don't believe me? Take a look at the Club web site results in the link above.
Fireballs are always wining these events (boring boring......).
A Dart 18 singlehanded win is really newsworthy. How come it was not reported?......
Cheers

The results you link are marked "Results are provisional as of 10:58 on December 29, 2015", the Sailjuice ones are marked "Results are provisional as of 13:07 on December 29, 2015" and they differ in the way they are scored.

It transpired that the NoR was ambiguous and was applied in a way unintended which resulted in the exclusion of the catamarans in the handicap results.
Hopefully this will get resolved for future years.

Why the prejudice against cats in the results?

Don't think it's prejudice. catamarans march to a sufficiently different drummer that it's by no means illogical to split them into a different series. With such small entry of multihulls the scoring system used was more likely to advantage than disadvantage them, if the dart had done three races might well have been a different story.

Welcome to our world at least they featured when our windsurfing lass entered an event run by a cat club they ignored here completely then gave her and absurd handicap to ensure a cat won the event.

Cats ad Cat sailors are crimes against sailing humanity.

There was not a prejudice against cats. It was a mix up in the Grafham club caused by an ambiguity in the NoR.

Talking of predjudice against cats, after over 5 years as an official RYA youth class, the Spitfire class has finally been invited/allowed to appear on the RYA Youth Sailing stand at the dinghy show. Maybe the RYA are FINALLY realising that cats are the way foreward
