New RYA Portsmouth Yardstick (PY) Numbers in use


The RYA has published a new set of PY numbers for 2018.
It seems to be quite a re-jig, as even the Laser1 gets a new number ! (+1)

To see them Click Here.

Some Notes:-

1.  The list shows changes in number from 2017. 

2.  A minus change means the boat is deemed to be faster.  A plus change means the boat is deemed to be slower. Congratulations to the RS Vareo sailors who, after 14 was added in 2017, have had 5 added in 2018 !  Now you should win races.

3.  Some boats are not on the list at all, probably as they have not sent any results to the RYA.  The list contains "Experimental" numbers for some boats (some not experimental at all i.e. Wanderer).  This is because not enough race returns were sent to the RYA.

If you have any questions, please contact me, via "Contact Us" on the web site.
