Well, well, the snow has distracted every one from PY speculation, given new numbers are to be released the Dinghy Show.

My whisper is that the Farr 3.7 moves to the same as a RS300, or lower if finished in mock-carbon

Fab,

If you really want to get a reaction you go to the Butler stand, move close to the very nice Streaker that is there and ask in a loud voice, "which one is the 3.7" then retreat fast!

Here’s hoping they put the 300 back up to compatible handicap to the phantom

I'll be on the Butler stand at some point asking the same question.

As to the PYAG, it's a lost cause the only way round it is a new body with absolutely no connection to the RYA imv if anyone else thinks the same, you know where to find me...

For once, the 400 is a non-mover! If the no of races recorded is an indication of activity levels in a class only 3 double-handers in the top 10 (400, 200, Merlin), Laser still miles out in front, 49er takes the biggest hit (-13), biggest winners are Mirror, Topper and Megabyte (+11). Notable absentees, Farr and Icon.

I've raced the Topper a couple of times this winter, admittedly in a blow, but with a bit of a blown out sail, and found the handicap a little embarrassing. 11 more points is very odd. Are the small sail results getting mixed in? They'll ban me, soon!

I'm fairly happy as the Blaze is +4 probably due entirely to my results last year.....

Blaze 671 "supersonic soap dish"
Supernova 395 "dolly the sheep" (now sold but considering a second (mk3) Blaze as her replacement)

It now it reflects exactly what the GL number is ....  (somebody tell GRFi for goodness sake ! - And No .... I'm not going to say what they have down for the Farr 3.7)
